Give Medical Care to Stray Animals and Wildlife

Give Medical Care to Stray Animals and Wildlife

Summary

This project will support the DoveLewis Stray Animal & Wildlife Program, which ensures that no animal that comes through our doors is turned away from emergency medical care. Each year, hundreds of injured and sick stray and wild animals are brought to us, and this program supports our doctors as they provide the best quality care.

Challenge

Last year, we cared for over 1200 stray and wild animals, and it is not uncommon for the cost of emergency treatment for these animals to rise above $200,000 every year. As the Portland area grows, more and more wildlife are encountering humans, with often traumatic consequences. Additionally, DoveLewis has become a central point for good samaritans to bring stray animals; we help reunite strays with their owners and ensure they are healthy.

Solution

We ensure that all animals that are brought to us are healthy and stable before transferring them to the Audubon Society (for wildlife) or area animal shelters (for stray pets, if we cannot locate the owner in several days.) We need support to continue operating this essential community resource.

Long-Term Impact

All animals deserve quality care even if they do not have a human "owner." While there will always be pets who dash out of homes and there will always be human-wildlife conflicts, our program can help mitigate effects on our animal friends.
