Origin Story: Street Dog Hero


In this week’s Origin Story, sponsored by to BendBroadband Business, Samantha O’Connor introduces us to Marianne Cox.

She started Street Dog Hero because that’s exactly what she hoped to be – a hero for street dogs.

Almost three years later, she’s built a rescue that’s saved more than 600 dogs from all over the world.

It all started with a trip to Mexico.

There are several ways to help – you can adopt a dog, foster, volunteer at events, donate and you can even fly dogs up here on your next vacation. 

You can find more about all these opportunities and an upcoming fundraiser next weekend at 10 Barrel Brewing in Bend at streetdoghero.org.
