Pet Day is held at Magruder Hall, located on 30th Street just west of the Merritt Truax Indoor Center. The event is free and open to the public, although a handful of activities will have nominal fees that serve as fundraisers for the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association and other student clubs, including a dog wash, pony rides, a fun run and a pet photo booth.
A fun run/walk event will begin at 9 a.m. and registration may be done online in advance, or beginning at 7:30 a.m. the day of the race. The 5-kilometer event will loop through the OSU campus and end at Magruder Hall. Race-day registration is $17, with a $2 discount for those signing up online by Friday, April 30.
Tours of the facilities, including the Lois Bates Acheson Teaching Hospital, begin at 10 a.m. and are free.
Other events include dog agility demonstrations, a petting zoo, a pet wash, canine Frisbee-catching contests and teddy bear surgery. A number of prizes will be given away during Pet Day.
