Dog days on campus include parade, vaccinations, tags
For the second consecutive year, Northwest is going to the dogs, and anyone who cares about canines is invited to join in the festivities.
The Northwest Advocates for Animal Awareness organization will host the third annual Dog Days on Campus from noon to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 15, and 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 17, on the Memorial Bell Tower lawn.
On Tuesday, all dog owners are encouraged to bring their four-legged companions for a dress-up parade. All Northwest faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend, whether or not they own a pet. In addition, Chicago-style hot dogs from Sun Dog will be sold, benefiting the Dogs-4-Cats Feral Cat Program.
On Thursday, dog owners may get their pets up-to-date with rabies vaccinations, city tags and even microchip implants. Several veterinarians will be on hand as well as representatives from the New Nodaway Humane Society and the city of Maryville. Sun Dog hot dogs also will be available.
