Food Return Program:
Because of our generous return policy on pet food we end up with a huge amount of returned food every month. Rather than let it go to waste we donate it to non-profit groups. This is good for you as a consumer and great for pets in need! We regularly work with manufacturers to supply organizations with entire palates of food, sometimes as many as 60 bags at a time! Returned beds, crates, toys, and other supplies are also donated.
4th of July Pet Parade:
Bend Pet Express is the title sponsor for Bend Oregon’s famous Pet Parade. The parade marches through downtown Bend every 4th of July. It is so much fun and it keeps growing every year. Thousands of people line the streets to wave and cheer on the dogs, horses, lizards, and even a fish. The last few years the famous “Flying Chihuahua” has floated through town in his helium balloon harness! Come check it out. It is totally free and everyone is invited to join in.
