It’s time again for another Central Oregon Pets!
Our entire team of pet lovers is thrilled to bring you a new edition of this special magazine, filled with lots of furry felines, precious pups and even a goat, and an ostrich or two.
Central Oregonians came out in droves to enter our Cutest Pet Contest, where we selected a cutest pet (or two or three), but also awarded lots of other pets special designations. To tell the truth, looking through the many entries was so heart-melting that we couldn’t select just one! Thanks to everyone who entered the contest.
