33 Years of Gratitude

A barking-good time is planned for Potter League’s Heart & Sole Walk for Animals on Sunday, October 16, 2022, from 10 am – 2 pm.

Dogs and their owners will team up on October 16 to help raise funds for the Potter League during the 33rd annual Heart & Sole Walk for Animals at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, RI.

Thirty-three years ago, animal lovers gathered at Glen Park in Portsmouth, Rhode Island,to participate in the first Heart & Sole Walk for Animals event. Since then, the Heart & Sole Walk has evolved from a humble gathering to become Potter League’s largest and most important fundraiser of the year.

Hundreds of animal lovers across the state will gather once again to celebrate the 33rd Walk and help to raise money to make second chances possible for countless animals in our community.

We love being part of an event that rallies the entire community to save the lives of animals. It is wonderful to see the fundraisers, volunteers, staff, walkers, and especially the dogs who were adopted from the Potter League all at once.

Enjoy a fun-filled dog walk, music, a sponsor & vendor marketplace, food trucks, special activities for dogs and kids, and a festive atmosphere celebrating the special bond between animals and people.

The Heart & Sole Walk for Animals is a beloved tradition, and in addition to raising essential funds to support our lifesaving work, it’s an opportunity for animal lovers to join together in creating a more humane Rhode Island for people and pets alike.

Lace-up your sneakers and grab the leash because it’s time to walk to save lives! The animals are counting on us, and we are counting on you!

There is still time to make a difference. You can sign up as an individual or join a team. Plan for your family to have fun on the big day by enjoying a Flea-less Market vendor village with goodies and giveaways for pets and people, contests, an agility course, food trucks, and more.

The Heart & Sole Walk for Animals is our biggest fundraiser of the year, with proceeds providing food, shelter, veterinary care, and more to the thousands of animals who come to Potter League for Animals every year.
