Don't Shop, Adopt | Dog Days of Summer | 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.

CAT YOGA
NaMEOWste

You've heard of goat and dog yoga—now Brightside Animal Center is bringing cat yoga to their shelter! The cats at Brightside are ready to meet friendly yogis willing to spread some love—and possibly find them their forever home. For a small donation, you can hang with the shelter cats and practice yoga led by an experienced instructor. You may have to work around a cute ball of fur sprawled out over your mat—but it's all about the cuddles, anyway. 1pm. Brightside Animal Center, 1355 NE Hemlock Ave., Redmond. $10/suggested donation.
