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.

  • The aftermath of a 500-dog seizure in Fort Worth, Texas. Pictures taken at the temporary shelter HSUS, PetSmart, and the UAN set up to hold the dogs as they await their freedom.
On March 16, deputies with the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office went to the 51000 block of Ash Road in La Pine to check on multiple dogs.

After seeing the dogs, the deputies determined basic care standards were not being met, and found one female adult dog and two puppies that were in need of urgent care.

The owner of the 53 dogs released ownership to the Humane Society of Central Oregon. Since the seizure, the female adult dog had to be put down. Medical evaluations of the other dogs are ongoing, and the fate of the puppies is unknown at this time.



The breeds surrendered are Labrador Retrievers, German Shorthaired Pointers and Dachshunds.
