Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital, in association with the regional veterinary community, provides 24-hour emergency, critical care, education and community outreach. Our highly-skilled professionals are dedicated to: Improving the condition of animals needing emergency and critical care. Strengthening the ties with, and extending the reach of, the veterinary community. Promoting the well-being of animals and the human-animal bond throughout the community at large.
Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital is much more than a place where you can bring your animal 24 hours a day, knowing you ll get the best, most specialized emergency and critical care in the northwest. Our 100% donor-funded community programs also make us unique. Animal Assisted Therapy and Education: We screen and train human-animal teams which visit dozens of facilities, from prisons to schools to hospitals. Pet Loss Support: We help hundreds of people through their grief when they lose a companion animal. Stray Animal and Wildlife Program We are able to never turn away a stray or wild animal if they come to us injured. BloodBank: We run one of the largest community-based animal blood banks in the U.S. Hundreds of lives are saved each year because of our blood bank. It helps not only patients at Dove Lewis, but dogs and cats at other veterinary clinics throughout the Portland metro area.
