For the past 30 years, this beloved, dog-friendly fundraising event has attracted thousands of people and pets to support animals in the need. Participants enjoy special activities for dogs and children, a flea-less marketplace featuring vendors and sponsors, music, pet contests, food trucks and a festive atmosphere celebrating the special bond between animals and humans. Last year nearly $90,000 was raised in support of the Potter League’s mission by hundreds of passionate animal lovers, enthusiastic sponsors and generous donors. Every dollar raised at the event helps us create a more humane Rhode Island for animals and people of our community.
