PAW (Portland Animal Welfare) Team


Keep people and pets together during the most difficult times of their lives by providing free veterinary care to the pets of the homeless and those living in acute poverty.

Bottom Line for Portland

PAW Team cares for more than 1,400 pets belonging to people who are homeless or living in acute poverty by providing free veterinary care, vaccines, medications, surgeries, spay/neuter, pet food and supplies, life-saving surgeries, microchipping and licensing. This helps them access housing, keeps our streets safe and reduces suffering of animals and their people.

“PAW Team helps people and pets that have the least and need it the most. To the homeless, their pets are everything. PAW Team provides free, compassionate, quality veterinary care keeping pets healthy and safe and families together.” —Madeleine von Laue, volunteer lead, Potluck in the Park
