The Portland Animal Welfare Team saves lives, alleviates suffering, and keeps pets and people together by providing veterinary care to the pets of people experiencing houselessness or extreme poverty.
PAW Team provides vital veterinary services for over 1,000 Portland-area families per year, aiding individuals living on the streets, in transitional shelters or government housing, as well as those facing temporary financial hardship that restricts their access to medical care for their pets. For many of our clients, home is where their beloved companion animal is.
PAW Team provides veterinary care through a robust medical program including weekday appointments and weekend vaccine clinics at our NE Portland facility. Our services include essential wellness, vaccinations, parasite prevention, medication, management of some chronic conditions, food, pet supplies, and so much more. We have no veterinarians on staff and rely on the generous time and energy of a network of volunteers to help power our clinics. These essential services play an integral role in keeping pets happy and healthy and with the people that love them the most.
