A New Furry Best Friend is the Best Souvenir

You may have heard of an organization that allows tourists to play with puppies in paradise. If not, you need to see this.

There's a video making its way around Facebook and other social media platforms, and it has all tails wagging. Potcake Place is giving tourists a whole new reason to visit Turks and Caicos – as if the powdery sand, world-class resorts, and some of the clearest waves in the Caribbean weren't enough.

Put Your Paws Together for Potcake Place

Potcake Place is a remarkable volunteer-run organization that rescues and finds new homes for a special breed of Caribbean dog. This mixed breed – known as Potcakes – has a loving and loyal attitude and can be found in Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas. Recognizing the overabundance of strays on the islands, as well as the breed's potential for amazing family pets, a few animal-loving individuals decided to help these amazing dogs, getting them off the street and into new homes.

Barking Good Times on the Beach

Today, Potcake Place is a thriving rescue and one of the most popular places to visit for dog-loving tourists. In order to help the puppies socialize and get ready for their “forever” home, Potcake Place loans puppies to vacationers for a fun-filled day at the beach. It's easy – all you have to do is pick a puppy. They'll provide you with everything you need for an adorable playdate in paradise, including a water bowl, toys, and leash.

Homeward Bound

As you might imagine, many visitors fall in love with their new fluffy buddy. If you find yourself ready to bring home the best souvenir you'll ever find on vacation, we have some great news. It is 100% free to adopt the Potcake puppies. Dogs are ready to go home and completely up-to-date on all of their shots. The rescue will even help you with all the organization and requirements for flying your little love home.

Sit and Stay Awhile

If these adorable faces have you ready to visit Turks and Caicos, we recommend a stay at the fabulous Seven Stars Resort & Spa. These oceanfront digs celebrate the natural beauty of the island, with lush grounds and relaxing water features, such as its centrally located lagoon-like pool. Seven Stars welcomes families of all sizes with spacious, modern rooms that range from comfortable junior suites to lavish four-bedroom suites. Plus, Seven Stars’ impeccable service and island hospitality are ready to anticipate your every need. You can even connect with their Online Concierge before your arrival, so they can make your visit truly pampering by taking care of all your requests before you even check-in.

You might be coming home with a new friend from Potcake Place, and a rescued puppy sounds like the best souvenir to us.
