Keeping pets happy, healthy and at home with the people who love them is central to our work. For many Rhode Islanders, the cost of quality veterinary care for their beloved pets is out of reach. Elderly, disabled, or disadvantaged pet owners are often left with nowhere to turn when their pet needs care. To help ensure that our community’s pets have access to quality veterinary care, and to keep pets with their loving families despite financial difficulty, the Potter League’s Pets in Need (PIN) Veterinary Clinic, located in Riverside, RI, provides compassionate, high-quality veterinary care to the pets of Rhode Islanders receiving public assistance. The Potter League Spay & Neuter Clinic, located in Warwick, Rhode Island, is committed to ending companion animal and community cat overpopulation by providing high-quality, subsidized spay and neuter services using the Humane Alliance Model.
Rhode Island’s largest and most innovative animal welfare organization, the Potter League for Animals has three locations throughout the state. Our animal care and adoption center receives more than 2,000 dogs, cats, rabbits, and other small animals at our center annually and consistently maintains a Live Release Rate of 90% or higher. Our commitment to all animals means we are willing to pursue all reasonable efforts in order to provide for their well-being.
