MSU College of Veterinary Medicine/Alpha Psi Rho Chapter's 5K Dog Dash

Dashing Dog

Dr. Maria Perez, a neurology resident in the Department of Clinical Sciences at Mississippi State's College of Veterinary Medicine participated Saturday [March 5] in a 5K Dog Dash with her dog Cayla. Since being rescued and rehabilitated by Dr. Perez in 2002 after being hit by a car, 14-year-old Cayla is all smiles as she runs with help from her dog wheelchair. Most of the proceeds from the race sponsored by the Rho Chapter of Alpha Psi Fraternity at MSU were donated to the college's Safe Haven for Pets program.
