House of Dreams

Mission:

House of Dreams provides shelter and care to abandoned and homeless cats. Many of our cats are considered difficult to adopt by traditional shelters--we're one of the only area shelters with facilities for geriatric and feline leukemia positive (FeLV+) cats. We find them permanent homes or provide them a lifetime home and medical care in our facility. We are a free-roam, no-kill residence and shelter where cats can explore, mingle, or curl up in their own private space. As an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization that began in 1999, every dollar we raise is used to care for the cats.

Description:

Our long-time CPA is retiring and we're looking for a new CPA to provide pro bono tax preparation and 501(c)(3) non-profit financial counsel. We're looking for a Portland area-based CPA, preferably with 501(c)(3) nonprofit experience, who can prepare our quarterly reports and annual taxes and balance our accounts. Our retiring CPA will be available for consulting/advice. Thank you for considering us and helping our kitties.
