The Portland Animal Welfare (PAW) Team saves lives and alleviates suffering by providing free veterinary care to the pets of people who are experiencing homelessness or living in extreme poverty.
We provide free veterinary care to the pets of those experiencing homeless or those living in extreme poverty. To do so, we host free veterinary clinics staffed by volunteer veterinarians, veterinary technicians and other volunteers. We host weekly clinics during the week and roughly one weekend clinic a month. At each clinic we provide vaccines, deworming, and flea medication to each animal. Basic health problems such as skin, ear and eye infections are also treated, and donated animal food, leashes/collars, blankets, pet sweaters and other animal supplies are distributed. We are also offer free spay/neuter services to all of our clients.
