The Amigo Story
AMIGO was a former stray 'Bahamian Potcake' found starving and diseased on Grand Bahama Island. Rescued and rehabilitated, he became 'poster dog' for The Humane Society of Grand Bahama's 'National Awareness Campaign' on the importance of Spay/Neuter and the care and treatment of animals, going on to become a superstar in The Bahamas and Ambassador of Hope on behalf of challenged animals everywhere.
