Welcome to Potcake Place!

Potcake Place is a dog rescue charity based in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands. 

We adopt out 100% of all of our rescues to approved, screened homes throughout the Turks and Caicos Islands and North America. We run solely on donations. 

Our mission is : 


Our headquarters are located in Saltmills Plaza in the Grace Bay area of Providenciales.

Pop in, meet some puppies and learn some more about what we do.  We have a constant stream of puppies needing socialization and adoption.  

You can come by and take a puppy out for a walk - we'll give you everything you need, you just need to supply some TLC.

We are a Non-Profit organization run solely by volunteers. We could not operate without the kind donations of both time and money provided by our sponsors and volunteers.  Please continue to support our efforts how ever you can.

How to support our rescue work

Your donations are crucial to the work that we do. We are a non-profit organization, staffed solely by volunteers and all your donations go directly to helping these rescued animals.

Find out more about the different ways you can donate to Potcake Place and change the life of a puppy.

New for 2023, The Boutique at Potcake Place has a great collection of clothing and hats. All proceeds go towards helping animals in our care. Thank you for visiting our shop!

Potcake Place T-shirts are also available online via our Bonfire campaign. Your purchase will help us reduce the number of homeless dogs in the Turks & Caicos Islands

Looking to adopt a Potcake?

Once a pup is available for adoption, they will come into our rescue and adoption center.

We process off-island, and of course on-island, adoptions.  At any one time, in foster homes around the island, we have approximately 40 puppies waiting for loving new homes. 

You can adopt a Potcake and join the growing number of people in the U.S. and Canada giving these fantastic loyal pets a much needed loving home. 

You can save a life and make a difference in the future of one dog, of your own family, and of the Turks and Caicos Islands. 

We normally do not post photos of adorable puppies until an application has been approved.

How can I help?

An important way you can help our organisation is by bringing some essential items to Providenciales. 

If you have some spare space in your luggage and are interested in bringing some donated goods, here is our current wish list of supplies that will help us care for dogs in need.

Our current Wish List:

Newborn potcake puppy

If you are visiting the island you can help us by bringing essential supplies from our Wish List

Foster homes required

We are always 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

We provide all food, toys, and veterinary care you require. 

Please call Jane at Potcake Place on +1 649 231 1010 or email to find out how you can help us and give these very deserving pups some TLC! 


Couriers required

We are asking anyone booked on charters, private jets, or commercial flights going anywhere in North America to please contact us.

What is a courier?

We have families waiting to welcome their new pups into their homes. Many of the pups are getting bigger in our care and time is now of the essence to get them into the homes they deserve and have been waiting for so long. It does not cost you anything, as Potcake Place will cover all the costs, and you get lots of puppy kisses in return. The new families will be waiting eagerly at the airport to meet their new fur baby. 

Please call Jane at Potcake Place on +1 649 231 1010 or email to find out how you can courier for Potcake Place.


Wanna go walkies?

Another way to help our Adoption Center in Providenciales is to take a puppy for a walk! 

Our socialization walks are a great way to enable each puppy to have that crucial socialization time with new people and to experience new sights and smells. 

Monday to Saturday from 10am to 12:30pm you can take a puppy for a walk on and around Grace Bay beach. The process is first-come, first-served, and the number of dogs available varies depending on the day.

Did you catch the recent article in The Washington Post about Jane Parker-Rauw and the team at Potcake Place? We were thrilled to be included in the publication and to have the opportunity to spread the news about Potcakes and the work we do.

Island tourists swoon over stray puppies. Many bring one home.

In the Turks and Caicos, people line up to take rescue pups on a walk on the beach. Sometimes the line snakes around the block.
