ROBERT POTTER LEAGUE FOR ANIMALS INC

  • 1 person is interested

The Potter League is looking for 2 volunteers to commit to a weekly schedule with our Pet Food Pantry. We team up with the MLK Community Center in Newport and go out with them twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, to their mobile pantry - they supply the human food, we supply the pet food.

Volunteers for this position should expect to be at the shelter and pantries between 11:30 am through 3 pm Tuesdays and Thursdays. At the pantries, you speak with residents about their needs and supply food, litter, treats, leashes, flea and tick preventative and more! Volunteers should also be tech savvy to add or remove from our online inventory system.

Volunteers will also work on repacking food from larger bags into smaller gallon bags so it is easier to transport and carry. You will also be responsibly for deliveries of pet food to the MLK Community Center.

Mission Statement

As the heart of a humane community and in partnership with that community, the Potter League for Animals is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of animals. We promote the humane treatment of all animals and provide shelter and care for lost or unwanted companion animals. Through education, commitment to a standard of excellence in the care of animals, and fostering relationships between people and animals, we enhance the animals’ lives and enrich the human experience.

Description

The Potter League is an "open admission" shelter which is able to help as many pets as possible. We accept owner-surrendered animals, as well as all stray animals from those communities with which we have an animal control-housing contract. Approximately 2,000 dogs, cats, rabbits, and other small animals are received at our facility annually. The Potter League consistently maintains a Live Release Rate of 90% or higher through placement to new families, returned to their owners or released to another facility or rescue group. Our commitment to all animals means we are willing to pursue all reasonable efforts in order to provide for their well-being. In addition, almost 2,000 animals and their owners seek our other obedience, lost and found, cremation and behavior support services each year. We are the community’s animal care and resource center.
