Help More Animals Get the Care They Deserve

The pet population in our region is growing, as is the need for specialty care.

Over the last three years, DoveLewis has experienced a 27% increase in patients. This year, we'll treat over 23,000 pets and wildlife!

More Space for Better Service

We are doubling down on our commitment to treat more animals than ever before with a $3.5 million renovation project that will add 8,500 square feet of clinical space to the hospital. This project is transforming the second floor of our Northwest Portland facility, moving our administrative offices off-site, and expanding our service capacity to accomplish three main objectives.

Give Animals The Best Chance for Healing

• Creating three new animal wards for pets and wildlife to ensure quieter, more comfortable hospital stays.
• Becoming more responsive to emergencies around the clock with an additional, state-of-the-art surgery suite.
• Reducing lobby wait time and stress for pets and their people with six new exam rooms.

Provide An Exceptional Client Experience

• Two waiting areas for calmer, more welcoming experiences – one for emergent and critical patients downstairs and a second for scheduled specialty appointments upstairs.
• A thoughtful lobby design to emphasize privacy for sensitive medical and financial conversations.
• An additional “comfort room” to give more families access to a calming, warm environment when it’s time to say goodbye to their beloved family member.

You Can Help

Better Meet Our Community’s Future Needs.

• Increasing the availability of daily appointments and improving quality of care with expanded specialty treatment areas.
• Creating space and flexibility with an additional treatment suite for advanced care opportunities like oncology and ophthalmology.
