Documentary Focuses on Abaco Potcakes and Their Rescuers

New York City based actress and media content director/producer,  Evelyn Vaccaro, of Vaccaro Creative Productions, and Wendy Shankin- Cohen, CEO and President of Dr. Harvey’s fine health food and all-natural products for companion animals, teamed up to begin a journey of good will that launched them from NYC to Abaco. What compelled this mission of love was a collection of rather endearing and often unfortunate residents of these islands, the Royal Bahamian Potcake.
Evelyn’s dedication towards these dogs began 24 years ago during a visit to Nassau, where she first came across and fed a skinny street Potcake. Since then she has continued her drive to help them by becoming a rescuer and foster in the US. In her professional field of film and TV, her vision was to bring to light the perils of the street Potcakes of The Bahamas, living a hard life in what many consider paradise.
