“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
