Lizards, Llamas, and Lots of Fun!


Pet Day update 1/13/2021: 

We are currently working on how we can deliver a safely modified Pet Day.  Please stay tuned to this page or our Facebook page for updates. 

Pet Day is one of the most popular annual events in Corvallis! There are lots of fun activities including a petting zoo, teddy bear surgery, dog wash, dog agility demos 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 sell animal-related products and gifts. You can also visit with llamas, goats, greyhounds, and ponies!

Pet Day is created, organized and staffed by students in the Carlson 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 the corner of 30th and Washington street on the OSU campus on the first Saturday in May, 10:30 am - 3:30 pm. Pet Day is free and open to the public. A few activities like the Fun Run and Dog Wash have small fees (cash only). Free parking is available at the west end of Reser Stadium. 

Registration has closed. 

Vendor questions can be directed to Sara Smith at or 541-737-6779.
