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.
