Special deliveries bring smiles to young faces!

Instead of a sleigh, Santa's mode of transportation for this delivery, was a Potter League truck.

The Dourado family in Jamestown, the recipients.

"It just all fell together,” said Chelsea Dourado.

“I put it on my Christmas list,” said Colby.

"He put real puppy,” said David Dourado, his dad. “He wanted a real puppy, not a teddy bear."

And the dog already has a name.

"Vivvy said Jingle,” beamed Colby, about his sister.

"Jingle, like Jingle Bells for Christmas,” said Chelsea.

But this afternoon delivery was the second one of the day.

"This morning, we did a drop off in Tiverton and it was a kitten, young little kitten, so that was very exciting, sweet yes,” said David Enstone, with the Potter League, an animal shelter in Newport County.

The Moreau's of Tiverton, the new forever home for an adorable kitten.

"The cat's awesome,” said Tiffany Moreau. “The Potter League has been great."

Her daughter, Emma, all smiles.

"She's picked out the name Blue Bell,” said Moreau. “She's probably in shock. She did pick out that name and we'll probably name the kitten Blue Bell."

This, the first year the Potter League has done something like this,

"It's been amazing,” said Erin Dollard, with the Potter League. “I remember when I was a kid my parents brought a dog home. It's a memory I'll never forget."

And one these youngsters probably won't either. As for next year?

"We'll just have to see if Santa's available,” said Dollard.
