A Port in the Storm

Budget Shortfall Looms for Stray Program

A port in a storm. The only place to turn. A comforting place in the middle of the night for the animals who need it most. There are many ways to describe the DoveLewis Stray Animal and Wildlife Program. We treat hundreds of animals every year who are injured and desperate. As the only place to bring an injured stray or wild animal 24 hours a day, the need for this program is great. Cats, dogs, hummingbirds, ducks and squirrels – DoveLewis is here to treat and comfort injured animals of all kinds. But we are facing a budget shortfall as we head toward the end of our fiscal year (June 30.) We need just under $10,000 to cover our Stray Animal and Wildlife Program expenses to ensure we don’t have to make cuts to next year’s budget. Please consider a gift to help us continue to help all of these animals who have no advocate; no voice.

DoveLewis saves lives everyday

DoveLewis saves lives everyday. That’s not news to you. The tight economy is affecting non-profits. That isn’t news either. But here is something that may be news to you as a supporter of DoveLewis: our life-saving donor-funded community programs are feeling the pinch.

 The Stray Animal & Wildlife program never turns away an injured stray, but the guidelines for treatment depends on prudent use of funds. The Charlie Fund for Abused Animals provides abused and neglected animals with the care they need. This fund is used in emergencies, often for animals who are near death. 

 The following quote is from a family who’s pet is alive and healthy today due to Stray Animal benefits:

 “I had a pretty rough day on the day I went to DoveLewis. My dog was hurt and taken to DoveLewis for life-saving care. Treatment for my dog was given by DoveLewis who then located me. Thank you for taking care of my baby and making her better.”

 Please help us recharge our Stray Animal & Wildlife program so that we can help our community meet the needs of all of the animals that need our care. No other emergency animal hospital in this community is a nonprofit that relies on its donors like DoveLewis. Our philanthropically-supported services make us different and vital to Portland’s animal-loving community.

 As a DoveLewis supporter and animal lover, we are counting on you.

We feel fortunate to have DoveLewis there 24/7

Here is some DoveLove from recent client survey comments!

 “I brought in our hamster, Tudy (hence his attitude when we got him).  He was very sick, possibly neurological or his little cold just got too bad and had gone too far.  I was so very sad and felt no compassion from anyone I knew, until I came to Dove Lewis.  I could finally cry at ease, without judgment but in fact with comfort and understanding from everyone at Dove Lewis.  No matter how big or small, all pets are loved ones.  Thank you Dove Lewis, for your compassion, understanding and sweet card you sent us.  Love the Bullitt family”

 

 

“Everyone took very good care of my cat Penny. I felt that they all loved her as much as if she was their own.  Once I came to visit and saw how well she was being cared for I felt much better about her being there.  Thanks to everyone for doing such a great job and getting my cat home to me as quick as possible.”

 

 “I brought our darling 11 yr old lab in for an abd. ultrasound to r/o a tumor. We were referred by our vet at Cedar Mill Vet Hospital. Your staff was friendly, cheerful, & professional.

This apt was a last minute one & we knew going in, we may have to wait awhile. We didn't wait long!

We feel fortunate to have you there 24/7 in times of need.”

“Dove Lewis has consistently provided amazing care for Bridgette Bardog in stressful situations.  I am always amazed by the compassion of the staff and the ease of accessing services.  Thanks so much!”
