VUMC Pets of the Day: Sweetpea and Paco

DeAnna Sledge cat Sweetpea!

Today’s Cat of the Day is Sweetpea, submitted by DeAnna Sledge of the Vanderbilt Lung Institute.

Today’s Dog of the Day is Paco, submitted by  Louise Hanson of the Zerfoss Student Health Center. “Paco is a mutt and was adopted from the Nashville Humane Society. He is 12 yrs old. As a hound, he ‘works’ all day—hunting for animals and digging up the yard.”

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 later this year, and will be announced in MyVUMC.

Sweetpea and Paco were featured in the Feb. 27, 2024, edition of MyVUMC.
