Potcake Place K9 Rescue

Grace Bay, Providenciales

Potcake Place is a non-profit dog rescue shelter with a location at the Saltmills Plaza in central Grace Bay. This charity is a popular destination for visitors who want to see the unique island dog known as the Potcake and take puppies for walks on the world-famous Grace Bay Beach.

The Potcake is a distinctive breed of island dog found in the Turks and Caicos Islands and the Bahamas. These dogs were a cross between several breeds, including terriers used for rodent control on ships in the past, pet and working dogs brought in with the Loyalist settlers in the late 1700s and early 1800s, and possibly small barkless hunting dogs introduced to the Caribbean region by the Taino Peoples prior to Columbus’ arrival.

Potcakes are typically medium to small in size (with a mature weight of 40-65 pounds or 18-30kg), and colors include browns, blacks, creams, tans, and whites, in both solid and combination forms. The Potcake is a very friendly dog, especially if it is raised around people. The name Potcake comes from the cake of solidified rice and legumes left in the bottom of the cooking pot after making the staple of peas n’ rice, a spicy rice and bean side dish.

    I wanted to visit this dog rescue to donate. They are a lovely organization. The puppies and dogs are taken care of until they find a forever home. I took a few pictures of the sweet puppies. You can apply to adopt them and brought to the US. Hazelnut is the sweet puppy sitting in my pictures. I walked down and around after buying a shirt. I saw "hazelnut" in the arms of a woman!! She was just ADOPTED!!

    What a lovely kind and cute place it is! Dogs are being loved there and staff is very nice. We enjoyed walking Beyonce today🥰 i wish more people will get envolved into helping their small friends and of course doing donations to help the place run. We highly considering adopting from there in the future even though we live in NY. But turns out it is very possible.

    Definitely get here early if you want to walk a pup. We arrived at 9 even though they do not open until 10 and we were one of 5 who got a puppy to walk. The volunteers here are amazing!!! They all are super helpful and take great care of these animals. You get a whole kit for your adventure with water treats toys and poop bags! Definitely will be adopting from here once we buy a house! It was such a great experience!!!

    So folks , you should all know how superiority has made this perfect canine so attractive. You will need to be a strong personality and be able to resist late age puppy aggression. Other than that, this dogs devotion is to the master till death do you part. Highly recommended . This is my love, Rue Pearl.
