The Heart & Sole Walk for Animals is a beloved tradition. In addition to raising essential funds to support our lifesaving work, it’s an opportunity for animal lovers to join together in creating a more humane Rhode Island for people and pets alike.

Your participation and fundraising for the Heart & Sole Walk for Animals helps the Potter League care for thousands of homeless animals each year and gives them the second chance they need and deserve. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to help every animal receive the very best care and find a loving home. 

Bring the entire family, your friends and your dogs. Participants can register as individuals, create or join a team and raise top dog dollars by using our easy online fundraising website. There is no registration fee to attend. All participants are encouraged to fundraise or donate to help animals in need.
