DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital
DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital was founded in 1973 by Mr. A.B. Lewis, in cooperation with the Portland Veterinary Medical Association, and in memory of Mr. Lewis’ late wife, Dove.

Dove Lewis and A.B. were breeders of Standard Poodles, Yorkshire Terriers, and Shih Tzus. Dove and A.B. ran the family kennel and dog grooming business (very upscale for its time), and because of her talent and special way with animals, people from across the country sent their dogs to Dove. Her son, Jerry, remembered going to the airport to meet the dogs as they arrived on the planes, taking them home to Dove who would groom them, and then back on the planes they went. Dove loved all animals, especially strays. In addition to showing prized Standard Poodles, Dove adopted animals of all kinds: at one point, there were 14 dogs in the family!!
