Lace-up your running shoes for the 2016 Dr. Skip Jackson Dog Jog!  The annual student-run 5K fun run/walk held at the conclusion of the 2016 Purdue Veterinary Conference on Saturday, October 1 will begin with check-in at 7:00 a.m. and the race at 8:00 a.m. starting in front of Lynn Hall and following a route through campus. Proceeds from the event will go to the PetSafe Program and Priority 4 Paws (P4P). PetSafe is a community service offered by Purdue Veterinary Medicine to meet the short-term housing needs of pets whose owners are temporarily unable to provide care. Priority 4 Paws (P4P) is a shelter animal mobile care unit providing surgical services free of charge to Indiana animal shelters.

Once again the Dog Jog is partnering with area shelters to have adoptable dogs running in our race! There will be booths at the finish line to provide information about adoptions. Come run with us and find your new furry friend! All these dogs are looking for forever homes!

Register online before 4:00 p.m. on September 19 to guarantee a participant t-shirt or dog bandana.  Online registration closes Friday, September 30, at midnight with walk-up registration also available the day of the race. Sponsored by McAfee Animal Hospital and Blair Animal Clinic, the annual event named in honor of Dr. Horace (Skip) Jackson, professor emeritus of veterinary physiology and biochemistry, was first held in 1972 and is one of the longest-running traditions of the Purdue Veterinary Conference.
