Portland On The Cheap:  Pet Owners

There's already a great list of resources on the web just for pet owners.  Here are our top picks.
    Updated July 2015

Animal Aid
The non-profit dog and rescue organization offers spay/neuter services,  pet workshops and classes, and no-interest loans to people who can't afford the veterinary care that their pet requires.  See web site for more information; they also have an incredible list of local pet resources under the 'Library' tab.
Cat Adoption Team
The Cat Adoption Team (CAT) is the Pacific Northwest’s largest nonprofit, no-kill cat shelter with its own full-service veterinary hospital on site.

A leader in the shelter community with its extensive shelter medicine, adoption, and foster care programs, CAT cares for 400 to 600 cats and kittens on a daily basis with the help of a dedicated team of staff and volunteers at CAT’s shelter in Sherwood, foster homes, and various outreach locations throughout the Portland metro area.  They also offer a cat food bank.

Click on the tab "Resources" for a very comprehensive list of cat owner resources.
Use the search feature to type in 'pets' for all sorts of services offered:  pet sitting, grooming, photography, walking, cleaning and more.  Need a bed, kennel, crate, carrier or other pet stuff?  Try the 'For Sale' section.
