Paws for a Cause Will Support Potter League

Attend a party at Hotel Viking to help provide shelter for stray and unwanted animals across the state of Rhode Island.

The Hotel Viking patio.

Did you know that 37 percent of Americans skip vacations to stay at home with their pets? Thankfully Hotel Viking in Newport is now pet-friendly, and it’s offering furry guests amenities such as special treats by Wag Nation, water bowls and more.

On July 26, Hotel Viking’s Paws on the Patio is also hosting Paws for a Cause from 5–8 p.m. in support of the Potter League for Animals.

The Potter League is dedicated to education and community outreach, and promotes the humane treatment of all animals and aims to increase adoptions. Their mission is to provide shelter for stray and unwanted animals across the state of Rhode Island.

To show your support for the Potter League, bring dog or cat treats for donation to Paws for a Cause. To view the full list of donation items, click here.

Enjoy an array of complimentary appetizers, purchase a cocktail at the cash bar and buy something for your own little furry companion at Wag Nation’s pop-up shop. This event is kid-friendly and is for a great cause!

The historic Newport hotel also presents Paws on the Patio every Thursday at their restaurant. Hotel guests and the public are invited to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner with a furry friend on the patio. The doggie menu includes grilled hot dogs, mini burger patties, bacon, grilled chicken breast, good dog skirt steak and scrambled eggs.
