Update on DoveLewis Activities!

We’ve been busy the last few months!

Here's a snapshot of what's happening at Dove

  • DoveLewis Welcomes New Veterinarians! We’re excited to welcome Dr. McKinney and Dr. Thompson to DoveLewis! Dr. McKinney graduated from University of California Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and comes from the San Francisco Bay area, where she previously worked at an emergency and specialty hospital. Dr. Thompson earned her degree at University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine and made the trek to DoveLewis after working at a referral and emergency clinic in Madison.

  • DoveLewis Blood Bank Needs New Canine Donors Despite having approximately 80 volunteer canine blood donors currently supporting the program, DoveLewis estimates it needs at least another 20 dogs to join the hospital’s blood bank in order to meet the local and national demand for blood. Learn more at dovelewis.org.

  • Donor Spotlight DoveLewis was honored to receive a $16,000 donation from Rose City Classics after being selected as the beneficiary of their annual Planters’ Day event in Vancouver, Washington. We’re so grateful for their support!

  • Portland Business Journal Most Admired Awards Once again DoveLewis has been selected as one of Oregon’s Top Ten Most Admired Non-profit companies.  Voting took place as part of the Portland Business Journal’s survey that allows CEO’s from throughout the state to pick their most admired companies in several business sectors. There are dozens and dozens of companies to choose from, so each participant has to proactively decide which organizations they know and admire the most. Participants can only select three companies from each category.  This is the 8th time in 9 years that we have been selected for this honor!
  • Purchase a 2015 DoveLewis Calendar Are you looking for a unique and meaningful holiday gift?

And here are some recent testimonials from grateful hospital clients:

“As a doctor for people, all I could think during my time at DoveLewis was, ‘Wow! If only we could make our patients feel the way I feel right now—totally and completely attended to in all respects, from the moment I entered the building to the moment I left.’ Thank you.”

–Christina

My dog recently got out of the house and was hit by a car. A very kind stranger brought her to DoveLewis and they were amazing. Everyone on staff was very understanding and helpful. It was an extremely stressful and scary situation but I felt my dog was in the best care possible the entire time.

Update on DoveLewis Stay & Wildlife Fund

We want to share a special stray story with you this winter:

Alone, hairless, deaf and in need of emergency veterinary care—that’s how the neglected and frightened stray dog, Walter, was found late one night in August. His bare skin was damaged and sore because of a chronic skin disease or chemical burns. At 12 years of age, he was also suffering from a heart murmur, severe dental disease and overgrown nails.

It was about midnight when he was brought to DoveLewis, where a team of skilled veterinary professionals provided him with the immediate treatment and compassion he desperately needed. But Walter might not be where he is today, continuing to heal in foster care, if it weren’t for the help of our generous supporters.

As a nonprofit, 24-hour animal hospital, DoveLewis relies on donations to continue serving the Pacific Northwest in unique and vital ways. DoveLewis offers five donor-funded programs to the community, including a Stray Animal & Wildlife Program, a Velvet Assistance Fund for qualifying low-income families facing veterinary emergencies, and a Charlie Fund for abused animals.

Thank you for supporting us-- we were able to treat and care for Walter because you gave to the Stray and Wildlife Fund. Have a wonderful holiday season!

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:
