Homelessness is at a crisis point in our community. Pets are part of the family.

Help us keep pets together with their people during the most difficult times of their lives.

Your donations change lives. 

PAW Team is a volunteer-based organization and is supported entirely by contributions. Your gift has a powerful and immediate impact on those who need it the most.


Medical care is the heart of what we do but it takes a lot to keep a pet healthy and happy, from medicines to good food and even bedding and toys. We have donation bins throughout the Portland area where we collect supplies for our clients' pets.

Although we appreciate any and all donations, we are now in a smaller facility so we might not be able to take every item donated. We also want to urge our donors to take into account the situations our clients live in when donating items that might be large in size and difficult to move on a daily basis. We also try and improve the outlooks of our clients so we also urge our donors to inspect items for wear and tear that might be too excessive. If you have any questions about a donation just call 971-333-0729  or e-mail us at info@pawteam.org.

You can send items directly to PAW Team through our Amazon Wish List. Every item on this list that's donated frees up our limited funds to go to medicines and other services directly related to the animals we help.

PAW Team is also a registered charity with Amazon Smile. When you select PAW Team on Amazon Smile, they  will donate .5% of all your purchases to PAW Team.

Amazon Smile offers all the same products as Amazon. You only need to select PAW Team once, not every time you shop. 

You can register simply by visiting www.smile.amazon.com. Select "PAW Team" or "Portland Animal Welfare Team". (We're listed alphabetically with several other agencies that have "paw" or "Portland" in their name.)

If you're already using Amazon Smile you can easily change your charity to PAW Team. Just go to "Your Account" and scroll down to "Change your charity".



You can help PAW Team earn donations just by shopping with your Fred Meyer Rewards Card!

Fred Meyer is donating $2.5 million per year to non-profits in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, based on where their customers tell them to give. Here’s how the program works:

  • Sign up for the Community Rewards program by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to PAW Team at www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards. You can search for us by our name or by our non-profit number: 87340
  • Then, every time you shop and use your Rewards Card, you are helping PAW Team earn a donation!
  • You still earn your usual Rewards Points, Fuel Points, and Rebates.
  • If you do not have a Rewards Card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store.



You can turn your old car, truck, boat or motorcycle into life-saving veterinary care for pets of the homeless by donating it to PAW Team. Vehicle donations help the pets!

It's easy to do, and you don't need to hassle with selling your vehicle. Free pick up of your used vehicle. Just call us at 971-333-0729

It's a win-win! You receive a tax deduction for your charitable contribution; PAW Team receives the net proceeds after it's sold to help fund our clinics.
