Filming for ‘It’s a Potcake Life’, began here in Abaco, Bahamas in August 2015. The documentary highlights the struggles of the Bahamian Potcake, and the rescuers that are compelled to help them. Actual rescues are featured, and viewers are taken on an emotional journey, following these dogs as they voyage with their guardians from a life of suffering and neglect to futures full of love and prosperity. Filming continues in the USA and Canada, for a glimpse into the new lives of the Bahamian Potcakes abroad.
