Join CAMP’s “No Place Like Home” Campaign!
Companion Animal Medical Project (CAMP) is a homegrown, grassroots 501c3 nonprofit organization in Central Oregon. Established in 2020, CAMP’s mission is to help ease the burden on those experiencing homelessness, or facing other debilitating financial hardships, by providing veterinary care and supplies to their companion animals.
Since our inception we have, at no-cost to owners,
- Vaccinated 1,000+ pets,
- Performed 300+ spay & neuters,
- Financially covered 50 critical-care cases,
- And, distributed 10,000+ pounds of pet food.
In the midst of a housing crisis, we are building something important in this place we all call “home.” We are laying a foundation of stability, hope, and unconditional love by ensuring the furry family members of our unhoused neighbors can thrive, regardless of their humans’ current circumstances. While our services are animal-focused, our goals are always human-centered.
The saying goes, “There is no place like home.” But the idea of “home” extends beyond four walls and a roof. It is a place where we feel safe, secure, and supported. Sometimes that place looks like a building or a person, and sometimes it looks like a furball with a wagging tail. CAMP concentrates on the latter, but we honor all the ways “home” is expressed and experienced.
CAMP is now looking for our own “home.” A space where we can stock-up on critical supplies, store our mobile clinic van, and safely provide short term foster or rehoming services when reunification is not possible.
We have a goal of raising $15,000 by the end of 2023 in order to secure a rented office and warehouse facility. Please help us reach it by making a gift and joining our “No Place Like Home” campaign. A home for CAMP means a safer and healthier future for our community members – regardless of their housing status.
