Recipients of the donations will be:

Portland Animal Welfare Team:  www.pawteam.org

The Portland Animal Welfare (PAW) Team saves lives, alleviates suffering, and keeps pets and people together by providing free veterinary care to the pets of people who are experiencing homelessness or extreme poverty.

Coffee Creek Puppy Program: www.cci.org

A small group of female inmates at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (CCCF), located in Wilsonville, raise puppies for Canine Companions for Independence (CCI). CCI is a national non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with physical, cognitive, and developmental disabilities by providing highly trained service dogs. The inmates raise the puppies for the first year and a half of the dog’s life. The inmate handlers are responsible for the care and well-being of the dogs 24 hours a day. PVMA member hospitals provide veterinary sponsorship while the dogs are in Oregon.
