Potter League for Animals's Adoption Process

Thank you for your interest in adopting from Potter League for Animals. Our goal is a loving home and a lasting bond. Need a running buddy? We have her! Need a couch potato? We have him, too! We can help you find the right friend. We connect people and pets based on shared sensibilities, like lifestyle and energy, so every relationship is on a solid foundation. Potter League has a variety of pets available for adoption, including cats, dogs, and small animals like rats, rabbits, hamsters, birds, reptiles, and more. You can view all of our adoptable pets online on our website at www.potterleague.org.

We update their availability and location in real-time. They are still available for adoption if you see them, and there is no “on hold” tag. There is no appointment needed to visit our pets.

Adoption Fees:
Dogs: $315
Puppies (6 months & under):$450
Cats: $150
Kittens (6 months & under): $230
Rabbits: $50
Other Small Animals: $20 to $65

We offer a 10% military (active and veteran) and senior (65+) discount on adoption fees.

About Potter League for Animals

The Potter League for Animals is Rhode Island’s go-to animal care and resource center, where we provide shelter, veterinary care, behavior training, spay & neuter, owner assistance programs, humane education, and the opportunity for thousands of animals to find loving homes each year.

The Potter League for Animals (PLFA) is a local, private, non-profit charitable organization dedicated to animal welfare. Every year, the Potter League for Animals provides direct care and services to help nearly 10,000 animals in need through programs in the community and our three facilities across Rhode Island.

The Potter League Animal Care and Adoption Center in Middletown, RI accepts owner-surrendered animals and stray animals from the communities with which we have an animal control-housing contract; Newport, Middletown, and Portsmouth.

Come Meet Potter League for Animals's Pets

Begin the process by viewing our website’s Browse Pets page at www.potterleague.org and finding an animal you’re interested in adopting! We encourage prospective adopters to fill out our questionnaire describing the kind of companion animal they desire. The resulting pet personality profiles and staff evaluations aid our adoption counselors in finding the right pet for each adopter’s lifestyle. Adoptions are completed in person on a first-come, first-served basis. Once you have found an animal you’re interested in, please visit our Animal Care & Adoption Center located in Middletown, RI, during business hours to speak with an adoption counselor. If you wish to put an animal on hold or to adopt an animal from PLFA, you must be present at the PLFA Animal Care & Adoption Center. We will not put animals on an adoption hold via a phone or email request. By clicking the “Adopt” button in a pet’s profile, you can complete our questionnaire, which will help you complete your adoption paperwork more quickly when you visit us in person. Please note: Clicking “Adopt” does not place a “hold” on an animal or guarantee an adoption.

If you find an animal you wish to adopt, we’ll sit down for an informal consultation to ensure that you and the pet you’ve selected are a good match. During this process, we’ll also review the animal’s medical and behavioral records, explain policies and services available to adopters, and help you choose the right pet supplies.

PLFA will continue to support you and your pet at home. Our website contains information that can make your pet’s transition from the shelter to your home as stress-free as possible — including tips and details about our programs and services.

Our obligation to our adopted animals does not end when they walk out the door. We want to be an ongoing resource for people and their pets. If you’re looking for answers you can’t find here, our doors are always open.
