Central Oregon Pets - Fall 2019 | Central Oregon Pets | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Central Oregon Pets - Fall 2019

The magazine dedicated to the best friends of Bend and beyond



The team at Central Oregon Pets couldn’t be more pleased at putting out this second issue of our new magazine, which made its debut in spring 2019. As our staff list demonstrates, we have a lot of pet lovers here, and we know we’re not alone. Central Oregon is a pet lover’s haven!

Inside this issue, you’ll find lots for pet lovers of all kinds to enjoy. While dogs often take center stage in magazines like this, they’re far from the only types of pets we’re covering. (To those of you who shared that they wanted something besides a dog magazine, we heard you, and we aim to deliver!) 

Check out Cayla Clark’s emotional tale of visiting Second Chance Bird Rescue, where dozens of rescued birds are waiting for a new home. 

See the cat who won our Pet Costume Contest, among many other contestants. Also check out Jim Anderson’s story on Think Wild, Central Oregon’s newest wildlife rescue operation. And we offer info on CBD for all types of pets—provided your veterinarian is on board… 

And of course, we didn’t totally neglect dogs… they are, after all, our faithful companions on the trails and at the local patio drink spots! Check out Damian Fagan’s story on the hard-working, life-saving avalanche dogs of Mt. Bachelor. Read Isaac Biehl’s story on learning to care for your pet with canine first aid and wilderness skills. And look for advice from veterinarian Lisa Campbell about avoiding fights at the dog park

From all of us animal lovers here at Central Oregon Pets, we hope you enjoy this issue!
