Will I work with animals?

Because our patients are critically sick or injured, volunteers do not work on the hospital floor.

How Can You Help?

On-call Animal Transport Facilitator

Over 1,100 strays are brought to DoveLewis every year. We need help shuttling them to shelters. This is an “on-call” volunteer position as the number of animals in need of shuttling varies from month to month.


Holiday Food

Our hospital staff works around the clock every day, even on holidays. Show your appreciation through food! Cheese and crackers, chips and dip, fruit platters and holiday foods are their favorite!


Community Outreach

Spread your love for DoveLewis at events around Portland, including the Tour de Lab, Pride Northwest and more!
