DoveLewis

At DoveLewis Green is More than Just the Color of our Logo!

You know that DoveLewis has been committed to the health and well-being of your pets for 38 years. Did you know we are doing all we can to contribute to the health and well-being of people and the planet as well? DoveLewis is embarking on a green strategy to take our hospital to the next level in social responsibility. We are reducing our footprint in as many ways as we can to maintain the health of our community. DoveLewis is partnering with “Sustainability at Work” - part of the City of Portland’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability to make sure we are doing all we can for the environment while assuring the best care for your pets. Sustainability at Work has recognized DoveLewis with a Silver Certification. Read the media release>

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a way to embrace sustainability while making sure DoveLewis remains a viable, service-based, non-profit. In CSR, not only is the environmental impact evaluated, but also the social impact of our practices. Some of the ways we care for our staff are an employee health insurance program, the ability of our employees to bring their “well-behaved” animals into the office, and flexible schedules so our employees can enjoy time with their families and furry friends. Secure bicycle lock-up and shower facilities help our employees make their own personal commitments to their health and that of the environment possible. Our Pet Loss Support Program is extended to the hospital staff to make sure their emotional needs are met after dealing with losses on a regular basis. 

Our commitment to our mission remains the same. It is only the things that make DoveLewis a more socially and environmentally responsible community member that will change, all for the better!
