Collecting coats for homeless dogs

BrightSide Animal Center in Redmond is collecting coats to give homeless dogs protection from the storm. Ruffwear Performance Dog Gear of Bend kicked off the drive by donating 26 dog coats, jackets and more. 

The BrightSide Pet Food Bank helps the needy almost daily, but bookkeeper Pat Bowling said they're also asking for dog coats in sizes medium, large and extra-large, as the shelter supply can't keep up.

Donations are being accepted at BrightSide Animal Center, 1355 NE Hemlock Ave in Redmond, Tues-Sat, 10am-5pm. Or donate through PayPal via the website. Donations can also be mailed to: BrightSide Animal Center, PO Box 1404, Redmond OR 97756.
