The annual Dr. Skip Jackson Dog Jog is sponsored by McAfee Animal Hospital, attracts faculty, staff, students, alumni, friends and family, and their dogs for the 5K Run or Walk. This annual event is 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 Medicine Fall Conference. 

All proceeds of the 2019 Skip Jackson Dog Jog will go to the PetSafe Program and Priority 4 Paws Unit.  

The PetSafe program is a community service offered by Purdue University's College of Veterinary Medicine to meet the short-term housing needs of pets whose owners are temporarily unable to provide care (natural disasters, domestic violence, health issues, etc.).

The Priority 4 Paws unit is a mobile surgery service learning program that partners with local and regional animal shelters to spay and neuter shelter dogs and cats so that they can find a loving home more quickly. The mobile unit is also offered as a fourth year rotation block for veterinary students as an educational tool where students get to refine their spay and neuter techniques.

We are partnering with area shelters to have adoptable dogs running in our race! 

There will be a booth set up at the finish line to provide additional information about these shelters as well as representatives there to fill out adoption paper work. So come run with us and find your new furry friend! All these dogs are looking for forever homes!
