Pet Day 2013
Lizards, LLamas, and Lots of Fun!
Don't Miss Pet Day May 4th!
Pet Day is one of the most popular annual events in Corvallis! There are lots of fun activities including dog agility demonstrations, a petting zoo, canine Frisbee contests, teddy bear surgery, hospital tours and more. Numerous booths will be staffed by vendors and volunteers who provide information on animal health and wellness, nutrition, adoption and therapy. Other booths and displays will feature llamas, goats, greyhounds, and reptiles. And there's lots of food!
Pet Day is created, organized and staffed by students in the College of Veterinary Medicine at OSU. It is their way of giving back to the community and continuing a legacy of public service at the college.
So come on down to Magruder Hall on the OSU campus on Saturday, May 4, 10 am - 4 pm. Pet Day is free and open to the public. A few activities like the Fun Run, Costume Contest and Dog Wash have nominal fees.
