There’s A Tropical Island Full Of Rescue Puppies And I’m Packing My Bags Right Now

Just in case you thought paradise couldn't get any better, there's a place in the tropics with clear blue water, white sand beaches, and puppies. Puppies! There's literally nothing that dogs can't make better — even the sunny shores of paradise.

If you want to take your next vacation up a notch with puppies, check out the Turks & Caicos island of Providenciales. It's home to Potcake Place, the island's only dog rescue charity.

Sounds like my kind of vacation destination of choice!

Potcakes are the dogs commonly found on Providenciales and other Caribbean islands like The Bahamas.

They get their name from the food left at the bottom of the pot, which would be fed to the local dogs.

Potcake Place has a seemingly endless supply of the cute little puppers, and yes, you can adopt them.

However, if you're not quite ready to make that leap, you can swing by Potcake Place when you're in town and take a puppy out to the beach for a good frolic. It's good socialization for them, and obviously fun for everyone.

Adopting a Potcake is free, but because Potcake Place is entirely volunteer-run, donations are encouraged.

Even if you just want to help with their mission, they have a wishlist of things they need that you can bring to the island with you.
