Donations for the Humane Society of Grand Bahama – Support Potcake Rescue

Happy New Year POTCAKErs !!!

2014 is here and we are off and running here at Potcake Collars. My little creation, of tropical dog wear, continues to grow each year. I try and figure out new ways to help our four legged Bahamian friends through this small garage business. The recent addition of the popular new potcake t-shirts will help to promote awareness of the plight of the island dogs and will also help contribute financially to rescue organizations that work tirelessly to save and find homes for potcake dogs in need of help.

The Human Society of Grand Bahama will be the first beneficiary of the proceeds in 2014. A portion of shirts sold between now and April 1st will be donated to HSGB to help with there rescue efforts.

The Humane Society of Grand Bahama is a private, non-profit, charitable organization committed to alleviating animal over-population on our island, and further committed to the overall welfare of all animals on the island of Grand Bahama.

The Humane Society of Grand Bahama was founded in 1968 to provide safe harbour for the island’s homeless and abused animals. We are a private, non-profit charitable organization governed by an active and energetic Board of Directors. We are the only animal welfare organization on the island, which encompasses 530 square miles and has the Bahamas’ second largest urban area (Freeport).The island’s human population is over 50,000.

Potcake Needs a Home – In Fort Lauderdale – Your chance to adopt

Peaches, a “purebred Potcake” from Freeport is looking for a new home. She is not even 6 months old. Peaches was adopted from the HSGB as a tiny puppy and has been in a loving home with a fur sibling and three girls aged 10 to 15. The family is having some sort of a crisis and the mom and the girls will go back to Alaska until at least next summer. The older dog and dad are staying in Freeport. Go figure???? anyhow, they decided to give up little Peaches. Tip, that runs HSGB,  didn’t want to bring her back to the shelter for obvious reasons and was lucky to find a lady who flew over last Sunday and was willing to bring Peaches over.

Peaches (we think she looks more like a “Foxy”) is fostered by Mandy, Mike and their two 4-legged kids. She is doing great. She was at the dog park yesterday and loved it. Peaches loves to play and to cuddle. Anyone that is looking to adopt a great little Potcake please email me for more information at shopkeeper@potcakecollars.com

This is her on the right.



Potcake Puppy lift update:

The reason why we have not had a puppy lift for a while is that Delta doesn’t accept our Bahamian health certificates anymore. They want health certificates issued by a US vet which is financially and logically impossible for us. We are working and trying to convince Delta . Can you imagine, if Delta flew cargo out of Freeport they would accept Bahamian  health certificates for the dogs to travel anywhere in the US… and why should Delta care where the health certificate is issued if the dogs have already cleared customs well before boarding any Delta aircraft. Very frustrating……..

Fostering Potcake Rescue Dog from the Bahama Islands

We are fostering a beautiful little potcake from Nassua. Candice from Angels for Adoption asked us to help out with this one. Ayra flew out of Nassua into Orlando. She was driven to Tampa for a 3 night stay. Next she was picked up and spent a night in Tarpon Springs and then hitched a ride to Fort Lauderdale. We will be watching her for 2-4 weeks. Her new furever family will be taking her to Canada. This little potcake’s long journey will be well worth it.

Potcake Puppy Lift – Directions and Information

Hi Potcake Friends and Volunteers,
Yes, we are still on for a Puppy Lift this Friday, July 12th.
We meet at GBX, directions are attached. The plane is supposed to arrive between 10:30 and 11:00 am.
As you know, all hands, eyes, ears and brains are needed to make this rescue happen.
If you never experienced the craziness of a Puppy Lift please buddy-up with one of the senior volunteers. We will have a short introduction before the plane arrives.
The puppies and dogs will be nervous upon arrival. Some seem to be calm but as soon as the kennel door opens they try to bolt out. We have slip leads available. Rule #1 is to put the slip lead completely over the dog’s head and ears BEFORE it gets out of the crate. That’s why we have two people assigned to one crate.
Some of the dogs are so scared that they don’t want to come out of their crate. We don’t force them out. They wouldn’t go potty anyhow.
For the puppies we have puppy pens. Lynda Carlson is our assigned PS (puppy specialist). Small puppies are carried in their crates to these pens. No need to put them on slip leads, they don’t know what a lead or leash is yet.
Okay, I’ll stop here now. Those of you who helped before know that Puppy Lifts are challenging and those of you who are new…. I don’t want to scare you. You all will do a wonderful job and without your help these dogs wouldn’t get a second chance.
As you know, this is not an adoption event. But if you fall madly in love with one of the Potcakes please let me know. Some of the dogs are already adopted or go to foster/to adopt homes. If you have friends who want to adopt a Potcake please have them fill out an adoption application before the next puppy lift.
I’m looking forward to seeing you all on Friday at GBX. Feel free to forward this email to your friends. Please let me know if you are available on Friday and we might need transportation help on Saturday too.
If you have any questions, concerns please let me know.
BTW…we have plenty of paper towels and black garbage bags. If you want to bring water, gloves, dog treats that’s fine.
See ya! And thanks a million on behalf of our Potcakes.

P.S. Check back in on Thursday. We may have weather issues to consider.

Crayon Art – BURSAMAN – Potcake Collars

Coloring, with our little Lexie, has quickly become one of my favorite activities. T Mac D’s likeness is uncanny.
