VUMC Pets of the Day: Emma and Zoe

Today’s Dog of the Day is Emma, submitted by Lori Keatley of Obstetrics at Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital. “Emma is a 2 year old Lab/golden mix. I’ve had her since she was 6 weeks old. She is a lover, she never meets a stranger — she loves every one she meets, human or animal. She’s most happy when someone is petting her. She loves it when we go to Tractor Supply and gets attention and treats from all their employees — and she loves their bathing station.

Today’s Cat of the Day is Zoe, submitted by Wendy Morrison of the Cancer Infusion Center. “Zoe was rescued from a hoarding situation during the Nashville flood in 2010 when she was 6-8 weeks old. Despite her rough start, she is an angel. She captures the heart of everyone she meets.”

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.

Emma and Zoe were featured in the May 16, 2024, edition of MyVUMC.
