The definition of ‘paradise’ for most people is a tropical island with big palm trees, endless white beaches, crystal-clear turquoise water and the heat of the bright sun all year round. Most people dream of visiting such a location at least once in their lifetime, and when the time for this comes, they start searching for the best possible place that they could find. Well, we’ve got some good news for you all. There is a place on Earth that combines such a perception of ‘paradise’ with puppies!

Be sure to plan a trip to the Turks & Caicos island of Providenciales for your next holiday. The island is where Potcake Place is located – a dog rescue charity like no other. The rescue center and shelter is an amazing place and it is also constantly full of potcakes.
1. What Does ‘Potcakes’ Mean?
It sounds funny, but Potcakes is how the locals refer to the dogs that live on Providenciales, the Bahamas and some of the other island in the Caribbean.
The local dogs are usually fed with the leftover food that’s in the bottom of the cooking pot, and this is where the term ‘potcakes’ comes from.
2. They Come By The Dozen
Potcake puppies can grow to as much as 45 pounds. These canines are known to be very smart and loyal, not to mention lovable; they also have adorable floppy ears and are almost constantly wagging their tails.
You could always adopt a canine friend from Potcake Place, which seem to have puppies available for adoption all the time.
If you feel that you are not prepared to take a potcake home, you could still go to the rescue center and take a puppy with you just for the day, A good long walk helps the dog socialize, not to mention the fun you would have.
3. If You Can’t Adopt, You Could Donate
You could always adopt a potcake – it is an easy procedure and it is also free of charge. Potcake Place was created by volunteers and relies on donations, so any kind contribution to the charity is encouraged. If you would like to help the place with their activities, they have a list of things that they need, so you could bring something to donate with you when you arrive on the island.
4. The Perfect Holiday
