“Imagine the perfect pet – one that doesn’t chew or scratch the furniture, is house-trained from day one, and is full of love,” said Oregrown co-founder Christina Hadar. “That’s what you tend to get when you adopt an older pet. That’s why, for many families, senior pets make the best companions. And right now, adopting a senior pet is easier and more affordable than ever.”
The Humane Society of Central Oregon is currently offering a 50 percent discount on adoptions of animals seven years and older. Oregrown will cover the remaining adoption-related costs through the end of November.
On “Giving Tuesday,” November 29, customers at Oregrown’s flagship dispensary in downtown Bend can earn a 10% discount by donating $5 or more to the Humane Society of Central Oregon. The shelter will use the donations to purchase a much-needed X-ray machine.
Hadar said the partnership with the Humane Society is part of Oregrown’s commitment to community and helping those in need, including those who have no voice.
“Pet adoption is a cause that is near and dear to us at Oregrown,” Hadar said. “Many of us are lucky to have pets of our own. We want to encourage our neighbors to adopt or foster an animal this holiday season.”
