Alpha Psi is hosting their annual philanthropy event to benefit Safe Haven for Pets, a local organization which cares for the pets of abused women. Bring your pet and join Alpha Psi Veterinary Fraternity, Royal Canin, FitVet, and the Student Association of Veterinary Medicine on Saturday, March 2 at The Wise Center College of Veterinary Medicine. The 5k race will start at 8:00am. Stick around after the race for prizes, food and music!
We ask that all dogs be kept on leash, and to remain leashed through the entirety of the event. We appreciate your cooperation with this matter.
The Dog Walk/5K Run will be sponsored by Royal Canin, and prizes will be awarded to some contestants, as well goody bags and information about healthy pet diets for your own beloved pet.
About Safe Haven: Studies have shown that in abusive relationships, sometimes the abused is reluctant to leave out of fear of having to leave their beloved pet behind. Safe Haven for Pets eliminates that fear by allowing the victims of domestic violence to have a safe, secure place to keep their beloved pet while they distance themselves from their abusive partner.
