My Story

Welcome to my personal fundraising page

Hello Friends and Family,

The past 18 months have been quite a challenge.  For many of us, pets have been a great source of comfort and companionship and have helped get us through these stressful times.  I have been working at home since March 2020, and have spent much more time with my cats than ever before.  This is both good and bad.  I love them dearly and enjoy their company, but they often drive me crazy, probably similar to other people with their human family members.  Oscar (orange tabby) is 20 years old, Mandy (torbie and white) is 10.5 years old, and Harry (black tabby) is 1 year old.  Harry, adopted last November when he was three months old, just wants to play a lot, and frequently harasses the older cats (really, he is a punk).  It can be a madhouse around here sometimes, but they are my fur babies.  Hopefully, Harry will settle down as he gets older.

Throughout the pandemic, the Potter League staff and volunteers continued to care for the animals, and adoptions were very steady.  Lots of animals got a second chance in loving new homes.  The Potter League could not do their important work without the support of animal lovers in the community.

The Potter League's 32nd Annual Heart & Sole Walk for the Animals will be held on Sunday, October 24, 2021, at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, RI.  Will you support my efforts to raise money to help the animals at the Potter League?  Your donation will help provide food, medical care, and a second chance for thousands of homeless animals this year.  In addition, you will be supporting the spay/neuter program, behavior helpline, mobile food pantry, and outreach clinics.  These are only a few of the many programs provided by the Potter League.  You can visit their website at http://www.potterleague.org to learn more.

Please make a tax-deductible gift to sponsor my participation.  All donations in any amount are appreciated.  Your gift will help ensure that the Potter League can continue to be there for the animals no matter what comes our way.  I truly appreciate your friendship and support, as do the animals and entire team at the Potter League for Animals.

Thank you for your help!
