Pups for Adoption

Our puppy rescue center is now open! We can now process off-island, and of course on-island, adoptions.

Currently, in foster homes around the island, we have approximately 40 puppies waiting for loving new homes. We would like to take this opportunity to post their adorable faces and their stories in the hope of finding them a future home.

You can scroll down to see the available puppies that hope to find a forever home.



How you can help

During this extremely difficult time, we are more dependent on donations than ever before. If you can, please make a donation today. 

We are now, more than ever, in desperate need of volunteers to open up their homes to foster potcakes. If you live on Providenciales and feel that you can provide the love and attention that these puppies desperately need, please contact us.


Looking to adopt?

If you are interested in adopting any of these dogs, or wish to be on our waiting list for the dog that is right for you, please fill out the adoption application form, email it to us and we will be in touch. We cannot reserve a particular puppy until an application has been received, reviewed and approved.

We carry out background checks and discuss living arrangements with all potential new parents so be ready for a few questions!

Each and every Potcake pup that we get through our doors is special to us, and every one that we can place into a wonderful forever home is one less dying needlessly of neglect, abuse, disease or starvation or being euthanised.

Answers to FAQ's can be found here.

**ADOPTED**


Chico

Available: currently in Potcake Place
Sex: Male
Age: 15 weeks
Likely fully grown size: 40 - 60 lbs
Coat: Brown
Litter Name: Chico 1
 

History

Chico


Temperament

Chico had to start the socialization process late as he was a little older when he came to Potcake Place. He has come a long way since coming into the centre and also has enjoyed some time in a foster home.

He has been having daily walks to the beach with helpful volunteers and tourists and each day is getting so much more confident.  He loves playing at the beach and feeling the breeze in his ears!

He likes treats and responds well to kindness but he is very guarded and unsure of new people although his confidence is growing that he soon warms up to people now. 

Chico will need a patient family who can take their time and give him the reassurance he needs. 

Probably he will do better in a home with another dog and no children.

If you could give Chico a home that he deserves, please let us know.

**ADOPTED**

Ricky

Available: currently in Potcake Place
Sex: Male
Age: 15 weeks
Likely fully grown size: 40 - 60 lbs
Coat: Tri colour
Litter Name: Long Bay two
 

History

Ricky, and his sister Rosa (adopted), were found when their stray moma befriended two kind-hearted men in the community. They fed the little family and called on Snip TCI to help spay moma dog and Potcake Place took in the pups.


Temperament

Ricky had to start the socialization process late as he was a little older when he came to Potcake Place. He has come along way since coming into the centre as was very scared to start with but showed no signs of aggression. He is just very shy and reserved. 

Ricky has been enjoying daily walks to the beach with helpful volunteers and tourists and each day is getting so much more confident  The early walks were more 'carries' to the beach but now he is walking on the leash. The social interaction is giving him confidence to meet lots of different people and new experiences.

Ricky will need a patient family who can take their time and give him the reassurance he needs. His moma and sister are calm and affectionate and we are sure he will be the same given time.

If you could give Ricky a home that he deserves, please let us know.

**ADOPTED**


Peanut

Available: currently in Potcake Place
Sex: Female, spayed
Age: 1 year approx
Weighs: 35-40 lbs
Coat: Black coat and white chest and socks
Litter Name: The Peanut Special 1
 

History

Peanut was a stray dog that started hanging outside a Potcake Place volunteer's home. Each day she crept closer and eventually stopped for some food.

As she came closer it was obvious that she had an embedded collar around her neck. She had an infected wound which looked very sore and she had a cloud of flies was following her around.

The volunteer put a food trap out and managed to catch poor little Peanut. She was taken to the Vets and they treated her with antibiotics for the wound and removed the collar without surgery.  Whilst at the Vets she was spayed, saving her from a future of unwanted pregnancies. 

The next step is for her to recover her health after the spay and the collar sores. She is pretty much all better. She has been staying at Potcake Place and now is looking for a safe and loving forever home away from the streets.


Temperament

Peanut is absolutely amazing!!! ❤️❤️❤️ We love her. She is so willing to please humans. She loves her food. She will sit and give a paw for a tasty treat. 

Each day is becoming less shy with us. She is a sweet-hearted dog and never has shown aggression. She is just learning to relax and be around people after starting her young life on the streets. 

As she is a stray we have no idea what she has been through or how much love she has received but she is responding well to the kindness she has received.

She tested heart-worm positive and will need a course of treatment. Her new owner will have to understand there will be some medicine required.

During the recent tropical storm we faced here she stayed with a foster family in their home. She did not make a sound. She was mostly happy to sit in the crate with the door open but eventually came out and even made it onto the couch! 

We feel that her confidence will be greatly enhanced if she had a home with a fenced yard to go out and play in. The foster family is working with her but she is still afraid of the leash and harness but yet keeps going to the doors to go out. 

Her crate is her security but we feel that over time she will understand that she no longer has to worry about things. She is crate trained for sure.

Peanut will need an understanding and patient home. We are confident that with the right encouragement she will become a loving and sweet companion.

She also has a 'Potcake smile' and the sillier you talk to her the more she wiggles and wags her tail.

We do not know what she will be like with children or cats. She is getting along nicely with the dogs at her foster home and lover a game of tug of war. She loves doggie brother and sister. 
 
If you could give Peanut a home that she deserves, please let us know.
