We are in the Willamette Week Give!Guide!


Every year the Willamette Week handpicks roughly 150 of Portland’s most impactful nonprofits and puts them under one digital roof. Once again we were lucky enough to be chosen. We are honored to be a part of such an amazing program. The revenue we are able to raise through the Give!Guide helps in endless ways throughout the year.

Please welcome our new Interim Executive Director.

Cindy Scheel, our fearless leader for so long, has resigned from her position as the Executive Director of PAW Team. In the years she has been at the head of our organization, it has become financially stable and achieved national recognition. Good luck in the future Cindy, and thank you.

Maia & her best friend.
