Who are we? Northwest Animal Companions is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue located in the Portland Metro area of Oregon that is completely volunteer run. We rely on loving foster homes for our animals in rescue and donations to cover the needs of those animals. We host adoption events and fundraisers all over the Metro area all year long to make sure we have enough money to cover vet costs, and to collect supplies that help us care for the dogs and cats in rescue.
Northwest Animal Companions of Oregon became a 501c3 in 2004 because a group of compassionate men and women pooled their resources for the benefit of all animals. They opened their homes and hearts to create an organization where the quality of life for animals could be the best possible. In its first year, NWAC had a positive impact on the lives of over 200 animals.
Northwest Animal Companions’ purpose is to shelter and care for stray, abandoned, neglected, lost, abused and/or unwanted animals until permanent loving homes can be found for them; to provide these animals with food, veterinary care including spaying or neutering, grooming, medications and all other services necessary to properly maintain them and to facilitate placement into permanent new homes; to shelter and care for lost animals until such time as they can be re-united with their guardians; to care for animals whose guardians are temporarily unable to care for them; as in the event of a major illness, hospitalization or temporary homelessness.
Northwest Animal Companions mission is to insure respectful and humane treatment of animals by providing assistance, rescuing and educational services; bringing people and animals together to enrich each others lives through adoption and companionship; to create a society in which all animals’ inherent value is recognized.
