Arthritis Pet Walk 2013
2013 Arthritis Pet Walk
A cold and rainy May day didn't stop the staff of University Animal Clinic from joining clients, friends and MediVet adipose stem cell technology dogs to participate in the 2013 Arthritis Foundation Dog Arthritis Walk at Lake Shawnee in Topeka, Kansas. More than 10 of these hardy souls braved the weather as team "Family Jules" to walk a 5K trail in honor of "Jules", a little Min. Schnauzer (2011 stem cell patient) that had died earlier this year. "Family Jules" and friends raised over $1500.00 for arthritis research by the Arthritis Foundation and impressed everyone else there with our gusto. We want to thank all of the generous donors, walkers and stem cell dogs that walked to honor those that couldn't walk. Thank you all!!
