Bend has been named on several lists for being very pet friendly; in fact some tourists come to Bend because they can bring their dog and play in out great outdoors.

 

There’s an old saying that you're not really a “Bendite” unless you have a dog, and stats seem to bear that out.

 

Lynne Ouchida with the Humane Society of Central Oregon says almost 50% of households have at least one dog and Bend has the highest rate of pet adoption in the nation, as well as pet return to owner rates. Why?  We love out pets.

 

"Central Oregon seems to attract active, retired people who value the outdoor recreation and lifestyle that Central Oregon has to offer. And that is a huge benefit to animals. People are getting out year-round. Think of the valley. You only have a few months a year to get out and enjoy walking with our dog and enjoying all the open space and dog parks. Central Oregon has lots of months throughout the year to enjoy."

 

Ouchida always recommends you spay or neuter your animal and make sure they have proper I.D.. for a happy lifetime with your furry friend.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
