Pets in Portland
Portland, OR is always listed somewhere in the top 10 dog cities but we are a great PET city! We are home to Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital, which offers community programs for pet loss support, animal-assisted therapy, canine and feline blood banks, and a stray and wildlife fund.
Most cities are lucky to have one animal shelter–but in the greater Portland area we have a coalition of shelters: Oregon Human Society, Multnomah County Animal Shelter, Clackamas County Dog Services, Bonnie L. Hays Shelter, Humane Society for SW Washington, and the Cat Adoption Team. There are also numerous rescue organizations and non-profits that work tirelessly to improve the welfare of animals in our community. The Veterinary Surgical Center of Portland is proud to work with a number of these organizations:
This non-profit pet rescue and adoption center retrieves homeless pets from overcrowded county shelters and rescues in areas outside of Portland. In addition to rescue and adoption, The Pixie Project also runs a low-cost veterinary clinic serving low-income and homeless pet owners.
Veterinary Surgical Center of Portland is proud to support this worthwhile organization both financially and by providing surgical services to assist in their mission. You can find out more about their work and see adoptable animals in their care on their website.
