The Calgary walk has raised approximately $250,000 over the past 15 years. All funds raised support OVC Pet Trust and cancer care, teaching and discovery at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC), University of Guelph.
More than 70 dogs and their families including students, staff and community members, braved the winter weather and chilly temperatures on Sunday, March 12 at this year’s OTS Dog Jog at the University of Guelph’s Arboretum.
"With the support of Pet Trust donors, the changes to our hospital and the support of companion animal research will ensure that OVC continues to be a centre of excellence in the world of animal health and remain at the forefront of veterinary education, science and medicine."

The Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph is currently conducting more than 25 companion animal-related clinical trials. Each study aims to help advance medical treatments that can improve the health or quality of life for our pets.
