Portland Animal Welfare Clinic prepares new site on eastside | Local … – KATU
PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Animal Welfare (PAW) Clinic is preparing to open its doors to a new home in Southeast.
PAW helps Rose City’s homeless population take care of their pets with vet visits, vaccines, medications and food. It’s all free and clinics are entirely staffed by volunteers.
The clinic has been running in Northwest Portland since 1999. The new spot in Southeast will be next to Saint Francis of Assisi School, a busy spot that’s served the homeless for more than 40 years.
“You will never find more adored and loved pets than those of our clients, because when you’ve lost everything, all you have left is the love of your animal. Nothing gets in between that,” Cindy Scheel with PAW told KATU News.
The next free clinic will be Aug. 9. Those interested have to fit strict financial rules.
