“Pets in Peace” Rally

To kick off national “Be Kind to Animals Week,” the Research Center for Human-Animal Interaction (ReCHAI) at the MU College of Veterinary Medicine and the Central Missouri Humane Society will host a celebration at 1:30 p.m. May 1 in Peace Park.

Bring your well-behaved, socialized and leashed or held pets for a one-hour rally to honor the love and friendship our companion animals have brought into our lives. A proclamation from Columbia’s Mayor Bob McDavid will be read at 2 p.m.

The  College of Veterinary Medicine’s Shelter Club  will offer free pet nail trimming. There will also be live music and a prize for the most senior pet.
