2014 Holiday Pet Food & Supplies Drive

For the 8th year in a row, the PVMA will be facilitating a Pet Food and Supplies Drive. Each year, the drive grows larger and larger thanks to the participating hospitals and their generous clients and team members. We hope to gather a significant amount of food and supplies for animals and families in need, in our community. Donations will be distributed to several local non-profit organizations.

 

Recipients of the donations will be:


Portland Animal Welfare Team: www.pawteam.org
Volunteer veterinarians, technicians and others provide veterinary care—including vaccinations and spaying/neutering— as well as food and supplies, to the pets of homeless and those in extreme poverty. PAW Team’s services reduce the spread of disease and help our less fortunate citizens gain access to or stay in housing with their animal companions.

Coffee Creek Puppy Program: www.cci.org
A small group of carefully selected female inmates at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (CCCF), located in Wilsonville, are raising puppies for Canine Companions for Independence (CCI). CCI is a national non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships. The inmates raise the puppies for the first year to year and a half of the dog’s life. The inmate handler is responsible for the care and well-being of the dog 24 hours a day. They socialize the dog and teach manners in every day living at their place of work, during meals, while participating in recreational activities, and in their cell. The dogs also have time outside
