Potter League for Animals Acquires Spay & Neuter Clinic

MEDIA ADVISORY

WARWICK, RI – (April 2, 2019) – The Potter League for Animals has announced today the acquisition of the Rhode Island Community Spay and Neuter Clinic, Rhode Island’s leading spay and neuter service provider. The Potter League for Animals has acquired the clinic’s assets, people and customer contracts. The merged business will operate under the name Potter League Spay and Neuter Clinic.

Located at 235 Elm Street in Warwick, RI the Rhode Island Community Spay and Neuter Clinic, was founded in 2010 and provides low-cost, high-quality and high-volume spay and neuter services to companion animals and feral cats. The clinic has performed over 60,000 surgeries since opening its doors. The service includes providing a van that goes to a different part of the state daily to pick up animals who can not be transported to the clinic by their families.

“This spay and neuter clinic is the keystone that animal welfare progress has been built upon in Rhode Island for nearly a decade” explains Brad Shear, Executive Director of Potter League for Animals. “We are proud to have taken on the stewardship of this vital institution so the important work being done here can continue long into the future”.

As a clinic specializing in high-quality, high-volume spay/neuter, the Potter League Spay & Neuter Clinic offers the unique skills of its staff that will continue to benefit the work we do around Rhode Island and beyond. The clinic will continue to serve 70+ shelters, rescues, and other animal welfare organizations across New England.

While the Potter League for Animals has operated as an animal care center offering programs and services such as adoption, humane education, dog training, and other low-cost outreach programs, offering subsidized spay and neuter has always been part of our mission, furthering our commitment to a standard of excellence to the community and making a difference in the lives of animals.
