The Niagara Community Helping Potcakes World Wide

What is a Potcake?

The Potcake dog is a mixed-breed dog type from the Caribbean islands, including The Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, and St. Lucia. Its name comes from the congealed rice and pea mixture that local residents traditionally fed stray dogs.

In the capitol city of Nassau alone, there are an estimated 5,000 to 8,000 stray potcakes.

Our Missionis to Help Potcakes

Our mission is to help island dogs have a better quality of life, whether it be in their own local community or coming to Niagara to find a furever home.

We are dedicated to providing the education needed to teach the local communities about animal welfare and providing travel when necessary to facilitate the adoption process.

How You Can Help

From “Freedom Flights” to “Corporate Spawnshorship” to fostering or volunteering, we offer many different ways you can help us help potcakes! Feed a Puppy or donate supplies.

We are very appreciative of any and all support in our mission to helping rescue and provide loving homes for dogs around the world!

What is a Potcake?

We are a small Niagara based non-profit volunteer rescue group working to help animals throughout Canada and all around the world, including dogs otherwise known as “Potcakes” that are from the Caribbean islands, including the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos,and St. Lucia.

We help to spay & neuter dogs in their home countries if possible, but also have “freedom flights” to bring puppies home to find homes when necessary.  We are a foster based rescue so all of our animals spend their time with loving people and friendly animals in their homes until they are adopted to their forever home.
