PrintAn acronym for Help Our Pets Eat, HOPE is a brand new community project brought to you by the Bend Spay and Neuter Project and Bend Pet Express. HOPE is a community pet food bank for low income individuals and families. Anyone who qualifies will be able to get a month’s supply of food for up to 3 pets at no charge! (Available supply depends on donations.) Paying for pet food is often the reason that pets are surrendered or abandoned. Pets are an important part of any family, so by supplying pet food to those in need we hope to help keep families together.

To help get things started, Bend Pet Express and their vendors have donated over 1000lbs of food! All of the food will be supplied by donation, so let’s keep the momentum going!

HOPE Community Pet Food Bank will be open on the first Saturday of each month from 10am-12pm at the westside Bend Pet Express (133 SW Century Drive) starting April 6th.
