Pet Day

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, teddy bear surgery, hospital tours and more. Numerous booths provide information on animal health and wellness, nutrition, adoption and therapy. Other booths and displays feature llamas, goats, greyhounds, and reptiles. And there's lots of food!

Pet Promise Program

The OSU College of Veterinary Medicine has partnered with the Oregon Humane Society (OHS) to create a program for pet owners who want to make sure their best friends are always cared for: It is called the Pet Promise program. When pet owners enroll their cat or dog, and contributes to Pet Promise, a legal contract is set up where the college becomes an advocate for a pet after the owner dies. The college and OHS work together to find the pet a good home, and all costs are covered.
