Celebrating the Human-Animal Bond

This year we will celebrate the special relationship between humans and animals, as well as that of animals with each other. The veterinary team is an important part of these relationships.


Thank you to the Oregon Animal Health Foundation for its support of this year's booth through a grant.

Thank you also to Kathi Lamm of Lamm Photography for loaning us some of her photographs for display in the booth.

Human-Animal Bond Photo Contest

Like the Oregon Animal Health Foundation on Facebook and share a photo of your bond with your pet, equine or other animal for a chance to win $100 towards your next veterinary visit! Note: This contest will run 8/23-9/4. To be eligible to win, please post your photo via the official contest app during that time period.
