School Programs

The Potter League is proud to offer a variety of programs designed to increase kindness and compassion towards animals, while reinforcing important academic skills. By engaging a child’s natural curiosity about animals, we can encourage a love of learning and help students develop their own humane ethics so they become more responsible adults.

School ProgramsLesson Programs

Our fun and interactive lesson programs are offered FREE to classroom teachers in Newport County. Classes are designed to meet your learning goals and can be offered at your location or at the Potter League's state-of-the-art animal care and education center.

After School Enrichment

The Potter League’s weekly after school enrichment programs will add fun and interactive animal-themed activities to your organization’s after school selection. Pick from a variety of themes, each one including crafts, stories, games, and live-animal guests.

Reading Fur Fun

Dogs make the perfect, non-judgmental audience for struggling readers. Reading Fur Fun is available to schools, libraries, and group homes, and helps improve literacy skills by giving students the opportunity to read humane-themed books aloud to dogs belonging to Potter League volunteers.
