PAW Team receives life-changing grant

Portland Animal Welfare Team (PAW Team), an organization providing veterinary assistance to folks with extremely low incomes and those experiencing homelessness, has received $50,000 to spay and neuter 1,000 dogs.  Funds will defray the cost of the procedure and prevent unwanted litters, reducing the pressure on overburdened shelters.  PAW Team also received a $30,000 grant from the Oregon Community Foundation’s Ed Caudero Fund to cover the majority of clinic funding for the year, and a first-time $5,000 grant from the Doris Day Animal Foundation.  In a recent news release, the folks at PAW Team extended heartfelt thanks to these and other indispensable donors “who are so vital to our mission to help people and their animals stay together, even when the animal’s basic care seems unaffordable.”  Learn more at
