Potcake is a term used for the community dogs of The Bahamas and Turks and Caicos Islands. Unfortunately, the situation of the pups does cross the islands. We are heartened when we hear of other agencies rescuing the pups:
"We adopted Maggie from a shelter that was sitting out front of our local Pets Mart. They told us the story of how her mother was rescued from the Bahamas, and she was pregnant with Maggie and a few other pups. They said the Potcakes have a rough time, and when I saw Maggie which her name was "Bay" at the time, I just knew we had to help her. I am so amazed at how well behaved that she is, and how fast she learns everything. I just wanted to let you know another great story to have for your web site. She was born in February 2006."
