Our mission is to exhibit LAH’s consistent support for the local community, as well as to assist non-profit organizations in the Portland area that provide care for pets belonging to low income families and homeless persons. The desired outcome of this project is to establish positive relationships with our community and to aid our partner agencies in expanding quality pet care.
This project addresses two identified concerns in our local area: First, there are a number of under-supported organizations that have a positive impact on pets and people, who need more help. Second, there are people in Portland who wish to contribute to worthy causes, but do not know how to act on that desire effectively. Therefore, the Lombard Animal Hospital Community Outreach Project will provide on-site and online opportunities for our community to get involved in addressing these concerns.
