VUMC Pets of the Day: Josie and Finley

Today’s Dog of the Day is Josie, submitted by Jenny Campbell of Vanderbilt Executive Wellness and Concierge Medicine. “Josie is an 11 year old pit bull we rescued from the Williamson County Animal Shelter 7 years ago. She’s the sweetest dog EVER.”

Today’s Cat of the Day is Finley, submitted by Amy Burlingame of the Westhaven Family Practice. “Finley was adopted from our local Humane Society. He loves belly rubs, his bird feeder (outside the window) his cube and all his toy mice. He loves his climbing pole and shelves on the wall. Some would say he is a bit spoiled but I say he is well loved! He loves to get brushed and we go through the whole daily routine, sides, chin, chest, belly, butt fluff and tail,  followed by treats.”

Pets of the Day — what you need to know

The Vanderbilt University Medical Center Pets of the Day are included in regular editions of the MyVUMC newsletter, which is posted twice a week by VUMC News and Communications.

The pets are selected from the hundreds of entries sent earlier this year to the VUMC Voice Pet Photo Contest.

For those who submitted a photo to that contest, watch MyVUMC for Pets of the Day, and in addition, regular collections of pet photos are posted to the VUMC Voice site. You can see them all here:

If you have a pet you would like to nominate for Pet of the Day, the next Pet Photo Contest submission period is coming up in 2024, and will be announced in MyVUMC.

Josie and Finley were featured in the Dec. 12, 2023, edition of MyVUMC.
