Project Potcake- Help Abaco Shelter

Most of you know  Dr. Harvey's as a company that makes natural and organic products for animals.  What you may not know is that part of our mission is to support animal rescue and animal welfare. 

Recently, we became aware of a small animal shelter in Abaco, Bahamas whose mission is to rescue, house, care for and adopt Potcakes, the indigenous dogs of the Bahamas. 
Abaco Shelter is run entirely by a  group of selfless and very determined volunteers. The shelter receives no government funding. 

Without this shelter the Potcakes would die of starvation and disease.  Abaco Shelter needs our help to further its work as it is a sanctuary for stray and abandoned dogs.

The shelter is located at the site of the old Abaco dump, Abaco, The Bahamas.
It is the island’s only animal shelter.
Abaco Shelter is in desparate need of funds to help buy food, medicine and supplies for the Potcakes. This money will be used for that purpose. We also hope to raise enough money to help them to expand the shelter allowing it to house more animals in need.

This is just the beginning of our Potcake Project and our dreams of helping these dogs. In July,  Wendy Shankin-Cohen, President of Dr. Harvey's, will travel to Abaco to bring supplies to the shelter. She will be traveling with filmmaker, Evelyn Vaccaro, a longtime Potcake lover. Evelyn will be filming a documentary that will show the plight of the Potcakes. It is our sincere hope that this documentary will help to raise awareness  about the immediate needs of these dogs and the Abaco Shelter.
Here is where you come in!
You can help these precious pups just by giving a small gift.  Any amount will help us to save more Potcakes!

Please join us today and give what you can to help the Potcakes and The Abaco Shelter.  
We at Dr. Harvey's are most grateful for your help and we know the Potcakes thank you too!

And one more favor...please share this page with your friends...on Facebook and through Email.
Let's tell everyone about the Potcakes of Abaco!
