BEND, Ore. -

At this time of year the Humane Society of Central Oregon is hoping all our animals will be in a home for the holidays. The Humane Society of Central Oregon is reducing adoption fees on most animals Friday, December 21 and Saturday December 22 during our Home for the Holidays adoption promotion.

Join us Saturday, 10:00 am to 5:00pm, for our Holiday Open Shelter with refreshments and special book signing of "Mimi and Maty to the Rescue” from noon to 2:00pm.

The shelter has a great selection of dogs, puppies, cats, kittens and small animals with a variety of personalities, colors and ages. This home for the holiday adoption special reduces the adoption fee to as low as $5.00!

All Humane Society of Central Oregon adoptions,  includes the spay or neuter, health exam by local veterinarians, first vaccination, microchip, collar, identification tag, carrying box, food and one month of free pet health insurance. 

Adopting an animal saves lives by giving them a second chance, and also gives you a lifelong companion who will bring many years of love and devotion. The shelter is located at 61170 SE 27th Street in Bend and open Monday - Friday 10:00am -5:30pm and Saturday 10:00am -5:30pm.
