Take a Homeless "Potcake" Pup to the Beach for the Afternoon
Visit Potcake Place to make a homeless dog's day by taking him to the beach. The small shelter encourages visitors take "potcakes" (the name given to the street dogs who are best known for their big ears) on beach outings, and even provides water bowls and treat bags to accompany you and the pup. The rescue is just across the street from Grace Bay Beach in the Salt Mills Shopping Center. It was busy when I stopped by to take Jackson, one of the dogs pictured here, to the beach and many were tourists adopting the pups after a day on the beach (note: the foundation organizes transport and pays all fees for the dog to fly home with you). It's a great way to give back on your vacation.
