Portland Animal Welfare Team

Our Mission

The Portland Animal Welfare (PAW) Team saves lives, alleviates suffering, and keeps pets and people together by providing free veterinary care to the pets of people who are experiencing homelessness or extreme poverty.

Our goal is to ensure that pets do not suffer due to their owners’ inability to afford basic veterinary care. We provide weekly veterinary clinics for the pets of our clients. Pets receive a veterinary exam, vaccinations, parasite control, prescriptions, county licensing, and microchipping. Clients receive monthly supplies for their pets through our food bank. We require all animals in the household be spayed or neutered to receive services and therefore, we provide spay and neuter surgeries at no cost to clients. To ensure access to this service, we provide transportation for clients’ pets to and from the spay and neuter appointments. In 2017 we helped 862 families (up 489 from 2016) and provided vital veterinary care to 1,186 pets in need (up 465 from 2016).
