Receive free admission to the Des Chutes Historical Museum Thursday, March 26 when you bring in pet food or other pet-related item. The event offers activities for kids from 1:30 to 4:30pm and is in conjunction with our exhibit Pet Tales: Furry Friends in Photographs 1900 to 1960.
Donated pet food will be split between Bend Pet Express HOPE program, Humane Society of Central Oregon, Bend Spay and Neuter Project, Cat Rescue, Adoption and Foster Team (CRAFT) and BrightSide Animal Clinic. The exhibit is sponsored by Bend Pet Express in partnership with the Humane Society of Central Oregon and Bend Spay and Neuter Project.
About Pet Tales: from the beginning of photography, our beloved pets have been the subject of numerous photographs. Whether purposefully showing off our furry friends, or unknowingly having them sneak into the family shot, we’ve been taking photos of our dogs and cats as long as we’ve had the equipment.
Located on the first floor, Pet Tales highlights selected images of our collection of thousands. Bring in a photo of your current furry Deschutes County resident to place on the community bulletin board at the exhibit. We’ll then put the photo in our archives to share for posterity.
