The Portland Animal Welfare 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.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2017 PAW Team provided free veterinary care to 1,186 pets, impacting 862 families. In 2018 we have already helped over 1,100 animals with free veterinary care. Our programs keep pets healthy, happy, and with their people by providing services that enable people to access and maintain housing and care for their beloved companion animals.
“PAW Team is awesome and shows so much compassion. I’m grateful for everything they do for Toto, my service dog. He’s trained to alert me if my blood pressure drops. Toto sees the vet and we get quality dog food here.”
