PAW Team moves to new, better space

Having served thousands of pets and their people at its Front Street location for the past three-plus years, PAW Team has responded to client and volunteer concerns by making changes “for the better.” Relocating to 1131 SE Oak Street in Portland, the location is in the St. Francis of Assisi complex, whose dining hall serves many PAW Team clients. The facility has heat, hot water, and rest rooms, and an indoor waiting area for clients, plus Sunday bus service, which wasn’t available at the former location. Tri Met lines #20, #19, #12, #6 and #70 all go right to the Oak St. door. The first clinic at the new digs will be held Sunday, Aug 9.

Sunday clinics run noon to 4, and clients may begin to line up at 11am (no earlier please: St. Francis is an active parish, and clients are asked to help PAW Team be a good neighbor). The folks at PAW Team expect to be able to serve about 40 pets as they get established at the new location, and new weekday clinics will soon be offered. To learn more, visit
