EUGENE, Ore. -- A local food bank held a fundraiser at Hop Valley Brewing in Eugene on Saturday, called the "Hops for Hounds Dogapalooza!"

It's to raise money for Food for Lane County's Kibbles on Wheels program. It's a service they offer to their Meals on Wheels clients who have pets.

At the event, there were several booths and a live band. A dollar from every pint sold at Hop Valley was donated to the program, and the brewery even launched a new beer to celebrate the fundraiser, called "Ankle Biter."

Organizers of Kibbles on Wheels said they started this program about a year ago, because they saw a big need for it.

If you couldn't make to the fundraiser but would still like to help, you can make a donation to Kibble on Wheels at Food for Lane County.
