We are the Portland Animal Welfare Advocates (PAWA): regular, everyday people who live in the Portland, Oregon & surrounding area who advocate for the ethical treatment of animals. This is not a radical "all or nothing" type of group—we are a grassroots, active group of people coming together to do something to help animals. If you support the overall welfare of animals, strive for a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, & want some company as you lend your voice, volunteer time, & energy to make a difference for the treatment of animals in our city & beyond, then we hope you have found a home with our group!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
