Supporting the Humane Society of Central Oregon (HSCO), Dr. Sue Dougherty, a local vet and owner of Bend Veterinary Specialties, put together a group of local artists and craftspeople to do a holiday art sale with all of the artists donating part of their sales to HSCO at the Bend Outlet Mall on December 10 and 11.
“As a veterinary internal medicine specialist I see and care for a wide cross section of the dogs and cats in Bend,” shares Dr. Dougherty. “The Humane Society of Central Oregon is a gem of an organization and the people of Bend love and support it. As veterinarians at Bend Veterinary Specialists we do work with the HSCO regularly and support their mission to do the best for the animals in their charge. I have been a spokesperson for Measure 100 Save Endangered Animals Oregon on the ballot in November.
“Holiday Tails was put together to support HSCO and to showcase the many amazing local artists with a deep love for animals and nature in our community.”
