Heart & Sole Walk for the Animals

Animals: The Heart & Sole of our Community

You walked, competed, raised funds, supported the life-saving work of the Potter League and it was glorious. On Sunday, June 4th, hundreds of dogs and their humans turned out for a fantastic day to celebrate and support the Potter League.

We thank everyone involved in making the 28th annual Heart& Sole Walk for Animals a huge success raising nearly $80,000 for the Potter League!

To our enthusiastic fundraisers, sponsors, vendors, donors, attendees, staff and amazing volunteers, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are so grateful for the support and love our community gives to the Potter League. Thank you!

Funds raised at the Walk go directly to helping, healing and finding loving homes for the animals in our care and to support the families in the communities we serve.

Congratulations to our top fundraisers and teams for their extraordinary efforts. We are inspired by the loyalty and dedication of our fundraisers in addition to the generations of families who continue to help homeless animals of our community every year. We also thank our Corporate Community Humane Heroes, media sponsors, our event day and in-kind sponsors for their support.
