The Dr. Richard Werner Legacy Society
Legacy gifts achieve remarkable impact on our capacity to grow, develop and remain vital for future generations of animals and humans. Legacy society members understand and believe in our mission and generously aid in its preservation. The Dr. Richard Werner Legacy Society was established to thank and honor these visionary individuals.
Our legacy society is named for Dr. Richard Werner, DVM, one of the founding fathers of our hospital. He worked tirelessly with A.B. Lewis and the Portland Veterinary Medical Association, demonstrating that an emergency hospital would be a sound financial investment and a supportive resource for the entire community. Dr. Werner and A.B. Lewis also pioneered DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital's first Planned Giving program by encouraging citizens to include DoveLewis in their will by hand delivering flyers to local agencies, businesses and community members.
