Letter: Thanks to those who walked for animals


To the editor:

More than 400 Potter League friends and their four-legged companions walked at Glen Park in Portsmouth on June 2 for the 24th annual Heart & Sole Walk for the Animals, and raised over $85,000 for homeless animals!

Funds from the walk will provide medical care, lost and found services, and shelter for thousands of dogs, cats and small mammals in Newport County. The Potter League’s education, training and support programs and services for pets and people also benefit from everyone’s dedication and efforts.

The Potter League shares our success with many. We are grateful for the fantastic efforts of hundreds of fund-raisers and their canine friends, more than 50 teams, generous donors, supportive sponsors, in-kind donations of goods and services and a group of 75 dedicated volunteers. Through their enthusiastic support and generosity, we can continue to save lives and give homeless animals the love, care and attention they deserve.

Fund-raising for the Heart & Sole Walk continues through July 31. It is not too late; you can still help. Go to www.PotterLeague.org for more information.

We are already gearing up for a fantastic and special 25th anniversary celebration of the Heart and Sole Walk in June 2014! Stay tuned for all the exciting details!
