Betsy Greene with her Jack Russell Terrier, GretaOn 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 Dr. Kerr and Dr. Carew with MercuryO'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.
