OSU Pet Day Saturday, May 6, 2023! 

Check out our Facebook page for updates. 

OSU 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 Oregon State University. This 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 Oregon State campus on the first Saturday in May, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. 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.

Pets are welcome to attend Pet Day. However, pets need to be attended, leashed or contained with the owner at all times. Pets unfortunately cannot come into university buildings including Magruder Hall. Please plan accordingly when you are planning your visit to Pet Day. For more details, you can check out the university's animal policy
