Harper & Tucker partners with Rhode Island's animal shelter, The Potter League for Animals to run periodic fund raisers, and to collect donations at the shop.
Founded in 1929, The Potter League is an "open admission" shelter helping as many pets as possible. Annually, they take in approximately 2,000 domestic dogs, cats, rabbits, and other small animals to provide food, housing, training, and vaccinations. The Potter League consistently maintains a Live Release Rate of 90% or higher by placing animals with new families, returning them to their owners, or releasing them to another rescue group. They take in everything from the ill, dangerous, and poorly behaved to highly adoptable animals already ready for their forever home.
The Potter League also provides a wide array of resources for pet owners, from allergy education to low cost spay/neuters and vaccinations. The Potter League services nearly 2,000 animals with vaccinations for low-income pet owners, obedience training, and behavior support each year.
