Lone Potcakes

Each day, hundreds, possibly thousands, of Potcakes fight to survive on Provo. They battle against disease, starvation, vehicles on the road, dehydration, rocks thrown by the unknowing, poison and more.

Every day, Potcakes wander in to back yards, on to construction sites, near to restaurants and resorts, searching for food, and looking for more. Most days, they leave hungry and keep on searching.

In July 2005, a forlorn wild pup wandered in to a back yard. Her skin was in bad shape, and she was as hungry as every Potcake in the bush. At 5 months old, people feared her and threw rocks when she came near. This day was different- she had found a yard, where the lady looked down from her balcony and saw a scared pup needing love. That moment is all it took. That changed the life of a Potcake, and a family.

"With a small amount of patience, she let us bathe and groom her. Once she was given a collar, she became much more settled. She is now a loving, devoted member of our family, and she gives us all the love in the world"- see Bonnie's Success story

It was the human population who first brought the dogs here. It is the human population who are responsible for their continued suffering. It is the human population who need to do something about it.
