Department of Animal and Veterinary Sciences (ASCI)
Faculty and Staff "Walk for the Animals"
On Sunday, June 14th, Animal Science
faculty, staff and their dogs, helped support the Humane Society of
Chittenden County by participating in the 15th Annual Walk for the
Animals. Dr. Betsy Greene
enjoyed watching her Jack Russell
Terrier, Greta, jump for joy after crossing the finish line and
receiving her doggy bone "medal." Pepper, Marcia
Purvis's Miniature Schnauzer,
enjoyed her leisurely stroll along the waterfront in her baby
stroller. Once again this year
the team lucked out with warm weather causing Riley, Jane O'Neil's rescued
Greyhound, along with Helen
Maciejewski's grand dog, Sasha, to take a
refreshing dip in the water fountain at Battery Park. Other
participants included Dr. David Kerr
and his wife Helyn, along with their
HSCC alum dogs, Onyx and Mercury; Fran
Kinghorn and her enthusiastic
dog, Otis; as well as long time friend and supporter of the
department's equine program, Jan
Schwarz, who helped walk Greta.
Dr. Lyndon Carew cheered the
team on, shown here with Dr. Kerr and Mercury.
The department wishes to thank everyone who contributed to this great cause and enabled the team to donate $350 to the Humane Society of Chittenden County.
