When you book with a sitter who has the Rover Donation Badge on their profile, you're helping dogs in need, right here in Portland.

Hugs for Homeless Animals

Hugs for Homeless Animals is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization incorporated in the state of Oregon. They are a humane education organization who provides support programs that bridge the public with animal caring organizations.

Since our beginnings in 1996, They have worked diligently to help animals who have found themselves homeless or lost. We have acted as an advocate to their well-being.

They provide programs to assist the animal welfare industry to fulfill their goals to provide good homes, receive capital funding, and to educate the public in this regard.
