OTS Dog Jog 2022

 OTS Dog Jog 2022 - VIRTUAL

EVENT UPDATE: Despite our hopes to gather in person this year, the 12th Annual OTS Dog Jog will be transitioned to a virtual event. On Sunday, March 27 we hope you will join us and share a photo or video of YOUR "jog"! Post a picture or video of your walk and tag OVC Pet Trust on Facebook and Twitter and/or @OntVetCollege on Instagram using the hashtag #OTSDogJog. Please help us reach our fundraising goal by donating online. The OTS Dog Jog team, along with OVC Pet Trust, would like to thank all participants, sponsors and volunteers for their support.

We challenge you to lace up your shoes and get moving in your own neighbourhood in support of the pets you love. Whether it’s walking, running, cycling, or anything in between, we want you to share it with us.

There will be a variety of prizes available to all our fundraising participants. All proceeds from the event will be donated to OVC Pet Trust.

The OTS Dog Jog 2022 team, along with OVC Pet Trust, would like to thank all participants, sponsors, and volunteers for their support.
