Program areas at Robert Potter League for Animals

Sheltering and adoptions we welcomed 1,493 dogs, puppies, cats, kittens and small pets to our animal care center this year and placed 96% of all Animals who came to us, regardless of their age, temperament, or physical condition. No healthy, adoptable Animals were euthanized and the League continues to invest in behavior, foster and veterinary programs to ensure Animals are rehabilitated and adopted. We found new homes for 1,211 Animals, and 231 lost Animals were reunited with their families. The Potter League provided free veterinary wellness clinics to residents of public housing including physical exam to, vaccines and microchips to 162 Animals whose families would not otherwise be able to afford care. Our pet food bank and veterinary assistance programs supported Animals who belong to families with low or moderate incomes. We supplied 8,234 pounds of pet food to food pantries and individuals in need and subsidized over $30,000 in veterinary care for people who could not afford care for their pets. The League's petsafe program provided emergency housing and care for 47 pets of victims of domestic violence, natural disasters, fires and other crisis situations for a total of 1,182 days. * collaboration is critical to our mission. The Potter League partners with the martin luther king center, the women's resource center, lucy's hearth, newport public housing and coyotesmarts. * our executive director serves as the board chair of the association for animal welfare advancement, the treasurer of the ocean state animal coalition, and is a member of the shelter advisory board for hill's pet nutrition. These activities enable us to bring the best practices in animal welfare back to rhode island.
Spay and neuter-the Potter League spay and neuter clinic performed 4,963 surgical procedures, provided 4,548 vaccines and implanted 979 microchips. Clients include individuals, animal shelters, animal rescues and groups engaged in trap neuter and return of community cats.
Education, behavior & training, and community awareness as the animal resource center for newport county (ri) and beyond, the Potter League offers a wide variety of programs to support our mission of animal care and protection. Our efforts also are aimed at supporting the bonds between an animal and their families; it is our goal to keep Animals in their homes and out of our shelter. Towards this end, 1,300 dogs and puppies in our community attended a variety of classes and playgroups. We provide one-on one customized training for the more challenging Animals in our care and offer them the opportunity to learn acceptable manners. Our behavior help line helped 555 people by phone and hundreds more by email. * our humane education programs provided 616 educational programs to 5,847 students -the youth who will become pet owners in the future. Included in our humane education offerings are: the Potter League's classroom curriculum, our reading fur fun literacy program, the popular happy tails day camp and girl scout animal care patch program. The Potter League is a founding member of coyotesmarts, a collaborative effort to educate the community about peacefully living with the coyotes in our neighborhoods. * volunteer support totaled 20,313 hours by generously donated by over 649 volunteers making a difference in all aspects of the Potter League operations. Our foster families nurtured young kittens and dogs needing behavior modification to prepare them for adoption.
