March 2014 Update!

We help hundreds of sick and injured stray animals and wildlife each year—in fact, we never turn an ailing one away. Last year, we provided stabilizing care for 1,666 animals. We receive minimal funding from counties in which we serve and depend on the support of donors to help fund treatment for these animals.

Good samaritans are asked to make a donation for the care of the animal they have rescued, but the expense is often much greater than the contribution. DoveLewis also treats injured wildlife, a cost that is unfortunately not reimbursed by anyone. Care for wildlife and the remainder of the expenses for stray and lost animal care is covered through the Stray Animal & Wildlife Fund.

Here are just a few of the stray patients we’ve helped this year thanks to the support of people just like you:

March 2014

We’ve been busy the last few months!

Here are some of the highlights:

  • DoveLewis received an award for 25 years of accreditation through the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). As an AAHA-accredited practice, DoveLewis adheres to the highest-quality veterinary standards, which helps ensure the best care for your pet.
  • Long-time DoveLewis employee Megan Brashear, CVT, VTS (ECC), was awarded Petplan Pet Insurance’s 2014 Veterinary Technician of the Year Award.
  • Teams from Portland Area Canine Therapy Teams (PACTT), our collaborative animal-assisted therapy program with Guide Dogs for the Blind, visited several facilities, including a local library to provide gentle, non-judgmental ears (Basma’s) for young readers like Francis, pictured.
  • DoveLewis was named the #1 Emergency Veterinary Hospital by regional publication Spot Magazine in their 2014 Top Dog Awards. Awards were given by community vote.

And here are some recent testimonials from grateful hospital clients:

 “Happy 1st birthday to Rufio and Griffey! Thank you, DoveLewis, for saving their lives when the brothers were Parvo puppies together; we are so lucky to have happy and healthy dogs!”

-         Reese M.

 “Auggie is home from the hospital and on the road to recovery. He has a fractured jaw that’s wired, but it’s not affecting his appetite. His left shoulder is bound to his body to heal, and the right hip has three incisions from the surgery, but he is starting to show his true Corgi spirit again. He is eating like a true Corgi.”

Reunion Story
When Good Samaritan Natalie N. noticed a feline wandering in her backyard on Christmas Day, she decided to bring it to DoveLewis because local shelters were closed for the holiday. As luck would have it, the cat had a microchip, as well as a long-lost owner, Jadah P. “Britches had been missing for almost three years, and I’d given up hope of ever finding her,” said Jadah. “It was a Christmas miracle.”


In the News
For the seventh time, Portland Business Journal recognized DoveLewis as one of Oregon’s Most
Admired Companies. Nearly 1,000 CEOs in Oregon voted to determine the winners of this highly
esteemed award, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.
