OREGON: Oregrown Industries, Oregon’s premier farm-to-table cannabis company, is a platinum sponsor of the Humane Society of Central Oregon‘s 12th annual Tuxes and Tails gala and fundraiser this Saturday, June 10th at the Riverhouse Convention Center in Bend, Oregon.
“The work of the Humane Society is vital both for the animals and for our community,” said Oregrown co-founder Christina Hadar. “The whole Oregrown team is proud to continue our ongoing support.”
Oregrown partnered with the Humane Society last year in support of their program to encourage the adoption of senior pets. At that time, HSCO was offering a 50% discount on those adoptions, with Oregrown covering the rest.
The Humane Society of Central Oregon provides care for more than 3,000 lost, abandoned, neglected and abused companion animals each year. The agency adopts animals into loving homes and provides both spay and neuter and pet food assistance programs, among many other services vital to the lives of both animals and their human companions throughout Central Oregon.
“According to one study, Oregon is the fourth leading state in the nation for pet ownership, and Bend is clearly a leader in that department,” said Hadar. “At Oregrown, so many of our employees, friends and customers have companion animals. That makes the work of the Humane Society personally important to so many of us.”
The theme for this year’s gala is “Mardi Gras for Paws.” The event will feature dinner and dancing, live and silent auctions, a “dessert dash” sponsored by local bakers and restaurants, and more.
