Beginning April 1st, 2017, HOPE will be relocating to Bend Spay+Neuter Project at 910 SE Wilson Ave. A-1 in the East Bend Plaza. Distributions will continue to be on the first Saturday of each month. April's distribution will be from 12pm to 1:30pm, but in May and for every distribution thereafter, we will run from 8:30am to 10am.
Please stay in your vehicle upon arriving, and look for the signs for the entry and exit off of Wilson Ave. We will come to each car individually to talk to you about what your needs are. As a reminder, HOPE is meant to be a supplement for your pet's monthly food. We do our best to provide as much food as possible for each pet, but our resources may change each month. Please be kind and respectful of our volunteers regardless of how much food we are able to provide. Thank you!
HOPE clients are required to show proof of government assistance, a valid ID and proof of your pet's spay/neuter. Please bring your government assistance award letter to each event.
Pets are family too, and that's why HOPE opens it's doors each month to provide supplemental food for those in need. When pet owners are temporarily unable to keep their pets fed, people must choose what to cut from their grocery lists, pets often are among those that suffer most.
And for those who can’t afford to keep their pets fed, the consequences are greater than just an empty stomach. Many pets will be surrendered to already overburdened shelters, many more will be abandoned. Finding new homes for these pets are never guaranteed. Families will be torn apart and lives will be lost, simply because there’s not enough money to buy pet food.
HOPE relies on food donations from the community! If you are able to donate, we accept any food, wet or dry, even if the bag has been opened. Donation drop off locations include:
