“Clara” leaves for her Forever Home!

There are no tags
Dr. Harper recently travelled to the Turk & Caicos Islands to snorkel with Humpback Whales. While there, she contacted a rescue group that works with stray dogs on the main island of Providentiales. They entrusted her with one of their Potcake puppies to bring back to Tampa and find an adoptive family. Her name is Clara and she arrived  on February 6th.  In less than a week she found a new home with a family in the neighborhood! She went home on Valentine’s Day to live with 3 kids and 2 other dogs. We are so excited for her! To find out more about adopting an island dog from Turks & Caicos you can visit the website www.potcakeplace.com  

HI!  MY NAME IS CLARA, AND I AM LOOKING FOR MY FOREVER HOME!

I AM A 13 WEEK OLD FEMALE WHO HAS BEEN VACCINATED.  I NOT ONLY HAVE THE FACE OF AN ANGEL, BUT I AM VERY SWEET AND LOVE KIDS!

I AM A “POTCAKE PUPPY” RESCUED FROM THE TURKS AND CAICOS ISLANDS AND AM VERY EXCITED TO BEGIN MY NEW LIFE HERE!

February is National Pet Dental Health Month, but dental care for your pet is important every day! Periodontal Disease could lead to pain and tooth loss.  Small dogs and Toy Breeds may be more prone to Dental Disease and 70% of cats over 4 have Dental Disease. Did you know you can brush your pet\’s teeth?  Just never use human toothpaste for a pet as it can be toxic.
