Information comes at a price.

This story is brought to you by Bend’s only locally owned newspaper, and crafted by journalists who live in this community, right alongside you.
We’re 100% local, and our coverage never comes with a paywall.

This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon.
In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

As you enjoy this story, we ask you kindly to consider supporting us at a time when local news is more important than ever.
Help us continue to bring you the stories of Central Oregonians affected by coronavirus, the stories of how our community is adapting, and the accounts of how our governments and local businesses are responding to the crisis.

The magazine dedicated to the best friends of Bend and beyond

Thanks for reading Central Oregon Pets—the inaugural issue featuring stories on a subject matter our entire staff can get behind. Whether furry and friendly, or scaly and strange, we love our pets, and we know Central Oregon loves them, too.

Inside these pages you’ll find coverage of local dogs and cats—but also reptiles, chicken keeping and one very special adoptive pony.

Read heartwarming adoption tales on page 4. Get the basics of puppy rearing on page 7. See the winners of our first-ever Paw Pageant on page 11.

Delve into the world of Adventure Dogs, who do valuable work in the mountains and on farms, on page 8. Get the rules around keeping horses, chickens and other livestock, and get answers to other questions around pet rules on page 19.

Ever wondered about the difference between an emotional support animal and a therapy animal? Find out what’s what on page 22. Read the tale of Oregon’s largest dedicated reptile store on page 25. And starting on page 27, find listings for Central Oregon veterinarians, pet sitting services, pet stores and more.

Check out the Central Oregon Pets Business Directory at: bendsource.com/petdirectory

So settle in with your furry—or scaly—best friends, and happy reading!
