Veterinary Wellness Clinic

The Potter League for Animals Veterinary Wellness Clinics are offered to income-qualifying pet owners at discounted prices. Clinic services include a physical exam as well as distemper and rabies vaccines, and microchipping.

To many people in Rhode Island and neighboring states, the cost of quality veterinary care for their beloved pets is out of reach. Despite the efforts of many, elderly, disabled, or low-income pet owners are often left with nowhere to turn when their pets are in need of care, and sometimes have to surrender them. We believe that everyone deserves companionship and are here to help these underserved pet owners. Our clinics offers routine physical exams, vaccinations, and microchipping. 

Clinics are drop-in and do not require an appointment.

The Potter League Veterinary Wellness Clinics exclusively serve the pets of eligible elderly, disabled, and low-income pet owners. All pet owners that are receiving assistance from a valid federal or state program will qualify and proof is required at the time of service.

What to Bring

In order to qualify for support from the our Wellness Clinics, we ask that you show proof of one of the following: Food Stamps, Medicaid Medical Assistance Program, Rite Care, Child Care Assistance, Subsidized Housing, WIC, FIP, SSI, SSDI, TDI, or Heating Assistance. 

We also ask that you bring any past medical history you may have on your pet, but not required. Payment is due at the time of service. Credit cards, cash, and checks are accepted.

Pets should be on leash or in a carrier. If you don’t have a leash or a carrier, leave your pet in the car and we will loan you one to get them inside. Or you can come the day before to pick one up. Please call us at 401-846-0592 ext. 119 and we would be happy to help.

Please note that there will be a limited number of pets seen per clinic and it is first come, first served. If there are more clients than we can safely help, we may ask you to return to one of our future clinics.


What type of animals do you see?
Our Wellness Clinics are for cats and dogs only. We ask that all dogs are leashed and all cats are in carriers.

How do I get there if I can't drive or don't have a car?
Unfortunately, transportation to the Potter League is the responsibility of the client. We do not offer any transportation at this time, however there is a RIPTA bus stop located on West Main Rd in front of Stop & Shop (on the street). We are approximately a 10 minute walk from there.

If I live in another state can I use the clinics?
Absolutely, yes.

What should I do if my pet does not get along with other animals/strangers?
If your pet is aggressive towards other animals or people, please notify the staff upon arrival and we will advise how we can best serve you. The safety of your pet, other clients and patients and our safety is of the utmost importance to us.
