PETS AND BABIES

2017 Dates:

Thursday, May 4

Thursday, August 3

Thursday, November 2

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM in our reception area

Pet-owning expectant parents commonly have concerns about how their dogs and cats will react to a new baby in the house. Will my pets be anxious or upset? Do I need to worry about my baby being bitten or scratched? Will my pets put my baby's health at risk?

PETS AND BABIES is a class designed to address these, as well as other concerns. You will receive valuable tips to prepare your pets long before your baby is born.

The presentation is FREE and open to the public.

Call Oakwood Hills (715) 835-0112 or email info@oakwoodhillsanimalhospital.com to register for this class.

In 1986, the Fido Fun Run was started as our fund raiser for the Eau Claire County Humane Association and has become a popular community event. Always held on a Saturday in May, the number of registrants continues to grow. Each participant receives a t-shirt, and each accompanying pet receives a tag in the shape of a gold star that states "Fido Fun Run." Non-alcoholic drinks, lunch, and desserts are available to purchase to support the shelter. The dogs are treated to yummy dog biscuits!

The 30th Annual Fido & Friends Fun Run was held on May 21, 2016.  In 2016, more than $20,000 was raised to directly benefit the Eau Claire County Humane Association. Statistics for 2016 were: Participation: 250+ people and almost as many dogs, and at least 1 cat!  All of the funds collected during this event help to care for the many homeless animals that come to the shelter each day.

We all look forward to next years event!!
