BEND, OR -- The Humane Society of Central Oregon is offering free premium dog and cat food for federal employees on furlough due to the partial government shutdown. HSCO has partnered with FreeKibble and Halo Pet Food to make sure government workers can still feed their animals.
Furloughed federal workers Crook, Deschutes, Jefferson and Klamath counties can pick up about a month's worth of premium pet food at the Bend shelter on Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. They must bring proof of employment.
Federal employees can receive pet food assistance at the Humane Society Shelter on SE 27th St. at any time.
