The bridge to your pet’s new home.
The Potter League is an Open Admissions Shelter. We accept owned animals from Rhode Island and neighboring communities, as well as stray animals from Newport, Middletown and Portsmouth residents. All animals are accepted regardless of temperament, age or health.
Owners relinquishing their animals are asked to fill out a personality profile to aid us in placing the animal in a new home.
- Dog or Puppy $50
- Cat or Kitten $35
- Litters of 3+ Kittens $50
- Rabbits $25
- All other Small Animals $10
Since it typically costs between $200-$450 for the Potter League to care for a dog or cat, we we are extremely grateful for any donation above the required fee. No animal will be turned away if the owner cannot afford the surrender fee. Owners with concerns about paying the fee should ask to speak with the Customer Care Manager.
