Portland, OR. The nonprofit, Do Good Multnomah, which works with under-served and homeless veterans, teamed up with the Oregon Humane Society and other organizations on February 13th to provide free vaccinations and health exams for the pets of local veterans. Portland Animal Welfare Team (PAW Team) and the Oregon State Veterinary College at Sandy Studios were also part of the team. Here are some of the photos from the event:
Do Good Multnomah organizers say those companion animals are very important to the veterans and ensuring the pets are healthy and vaccinated is an incredible service.
The 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.
Some of the services for the pets included vaccines, de-wormer, and flea treatments.
