Pups on the Plaza 2017

September 28, 2017

Thank you to everyone who made Pups on the Plaza 2017 such a success! We couldn't do it without our wonderful volunteers, the amazing Aramark catering team for providing the delicious food and the VCU School of Medicine for hosting us in the Mcglothlin Medical Education Building. Our Dogs On Call loved seeing their VCU Health and Virginia Commonwealth University friends and making so many new ones. Make sure to say hi when you see us in the hospital!
