There's an Island in the Caribbean Solely Dedicated to Puppies

Paradise found
This Caribbean Island Lets You Cuddle with Puppies

If you thought swimming among water-loving pigs in the Exumas was your true vision of paradise, there's now an even better utopia for you to visit—and this one is filled with puppies frolicking on pristine white sand.

On the island of Providenciales in Turks and Caicos, you can live out your new bucket-list goal of being being surrounded by eternal sunshine, brilliantly turquoise water and, of course, a litter of cuddle-worthy puppies.

According to Bustle, it's all thanks to a group called Potcake Place, which works to provide a sanctuary for the island's population of stray potcakes, a breed native to the Caribbean. And while most dog shelters at most allow you to step behind the dog cage, Potcake Place lets you take its rescue pups out for an entire day on the beach to give them some much-needed love.

The best part? When you inevitably decide to bring home your new best friend, you won't even have to pay an adoption fee—although a donation is strongly encouraged to help support the organization.
