Past Events

Cross-Canada Community Challenge

Event runs October 1-31, 2023

Our goal is to collectively walk, run, cycle, or travel 8,889 km (this distance between all our CVO locations coast-to-coast), raising $100,000 together. Will you help us?

Choose a number of kilometres to travel as a team, family, or individual, and collect pledges to help us raise money to bring essential care to people and pets experiencing homelessness in Canada.

We’ve also set up a special community where you can cheer each other on, post pics from your activities, get tips from fitness and pet experts about getting active with and without your animals.

Join us to raise money for people who love their pet as much as you do.

Mini-Vet School (TM)

October 21, 2023

Featuring 6 hours of programming from leading veterinary professionals and specialists, you won’t want to miss out.

The lectures will be fun, and will cover a broad range of topics from dog and cat behaviour, to police dogs, to preventing disease to up to date tick information!

Open to all animal lovers worldwide, suggested age 12 and up.

*Great to treat yourself to a day of learning, or gift to the pet lover who has everything, or the future vet/vet tech in your life!

This event is a fundraiser for Community Veterinary Outreach. Help us to deliver essential care to people and pets experiencing homelessness in Canada.
