I Love DoveLewis

Tats for Cats

DoveLewis and The Portland Mercury
Ask Portlanders to Up Their Ink Factor!

Been thinking of getting a new tattoo?
How about a cool design incorporating your cute Chihuahua, precious pit bull, or sweet Siamese? Our fundraiser, “Tats for Cats….and Dogs,” starts May 1st. Tattoo artists all over town will donate 10% of the fees generated in May by animal-inspired tattoos to the DoveLewis Stray Animal and Wildlife Fund. 100% of that money goes to pay for emergency medical care for injured stray and wild animals brought to DoveLewis. And even if you don't want to get a tattoo, you can still join the fun -- scroll down for more info!

Tats for Cats
Upcoming Events & Special Offers in May

In addition to getting or giving an animal-inspired tattoo this May, you can help raise money for the Stray Animal and Wildlife Fund by frequenting any/all of the following local businesses that are supporting the cause!

Here are some of the cool ways to “stray” from the beaten path this May:

Our friends at TigerLily Tattoo and DesignWorks have stepped up with not one but TWO very cool specials:
On Tuesday, May 20 from 9:00AM to 9:00PM, TigerLily will offer $50 pet name tattoos, and all the money will go to the Stray Animal & Wildlife Fund.
Simple script only; if you prefer fancy, it'll cost just a little more. Sorry, no portraits on this day. This is a first come, first served thing, so no appointment necessary!
TigerLily owner Matt Reed will also donate half the cost of the first saber-toothed cat tattoo he starts in May. Put some teeth (literally!) in your fabulous feline's ferociousness, and help stray and wild animals!
Thank you, Chesterfield for the Tats for Cats Dance Party!
Dozens of Tats fans celebrated their animals and showed off their ink at a mid-month dj’d party Sunday, May 18 at THE CHESTERFIELD.
Even if you missed it, it's not to late to participate. All month long, head to THE CHESTERFIELD where $1 from every Tats for Cats cocktail (the tasty & refreshing "Miss Purr") will be donated to the Stray Animal and Wildlife Fund.

Wine away the hours on Tats for Cats Tuesdays at VINO VIXENS, which will donate $1 for every drink ordered over $6.

Pick up an extra box of treats, a squeakie dog toy, some fab canine fashion or a cat bed at LEXIDOG. Just say “Tats for Cats” and 10% of the value of your purchase will be donated to the Stray Animal and Wildlife Fund.

Not ready for a commitment, but still want to show off some body art?
Perhaps henna is in order! Our friends at Silk & Stone Henna Body Art will give you the look you're after, no needles necessary, and it fades away in three to four weeks! Please note: the address for Silk & Stone is incorrect on their website. Check out list of participating artists for the correct address.

Rock it all out at an end-of-the-month benefit concert on Saturday, May 31 at 8 PM
at DANTE’S. Come hear the SKINNYZ, PHONOCHROME, and BRAD MAC. 100% of $10 cover price goes to the DoveLewis Stray Animal and Wildlife Fund. Tickets available at Tickets West.
