The Pongo Fund


The Pongo Fund provides high-quality food and lifesaving veterinary care for the family pets of our community’s most vulnerable, including seniors, veterans, the homeless, the unemployed, the low-income, the marginalized and more. Since 2009 our award-winning and volunteer driven group has helped more than 165,000 hungry and hurting animals, keeping each one of them safe, healthy and out of the shelters.

Bottom Line for Portland

The Pongo Fund provided 2 million high-quality meals last year, along with lifesaving surgeries, dentals, spay/neuter, medications, vaccinations and more, helping keep 20,000 beloved family pets safe at home and out of the shelters.


In Memory of Howard Hedinger will match the first $25,000 in donations to The Pongo Fund through Give!Guide.

“The Pongo Fund does amazing work. They are the unsung heroes of animal welfare, saving lives in a way that no one else does. I support them 100 percent!” —Howard Hedinger, Hedinger Family Foundation
