Well mai pals we have held the draw for the recipient of the February #PawPawty and I am pleased to announce it is Potcake Place which was nominated by @buzzlucas
About the Charity
"Potcake Place was first set up in a home on Providenciales, Turks and Caicos, which has fostered puppies for many years. They are a Non-Profit organisation made up of a group of volunteers who want to help these rescued potcakes. They take pups to the vet, and give them all vaccinations, wormers and other treatments appropriate for their age.
There is no animal shelter in The Turks and Caicos. They look after these Potcakes in their own homes until a permanent home can be found. Their policy is to house the pets for as long as it takes to find the best home. This is the only alternative they can see to them starving in the bush, being run over, intentionally poisoned, dying of Heartworm/Ehrlichia/Parvo or being euthanized.
They socialise the pups with beach trips, and organise dog training where necessary. They meet potential adoptive families for a play session with the pups. If an adoption goes ahead, we take the pup to the vet to arrange a health certificate, book the pup on to the plane, and meet the families at the airport. They also spend time finding volunteers to transport the pup if the family are not visiting the island.
Their aim is to increase the chances of finding a place for every Potcake. They hope Potcake Place can grow to involve more foster homes and to continue an adoption programme."
Again this month we have not been able to do the televised draw as we still do not have a video camera available. So the staff used an on line service called Random to pick out the winner.
