Become a Street Dog Hero

Street Dog Hero began when Marianne Cox’s heart went out to a street dog while vacationing in Mexico. What became of this chance encounter is a local Bend organization that rescues street dogs from around the world; placing them into loving families in Central Oregon and beyond. As you’ll learn in this week’s Featured Video, Street Dog Hero is one of several local organizations and foster families creating homes for street dogs who otherwise might not survive. But that’s just scratching the surface. To learn more and become a Street Dog Hero yourself, visit
