Alongside our Penn Libraries Autumn Dog Days events on Friday December 11, stop by our virtual pet gallery on Mozilla Hubs and post a pic of your favorite pooch or kitty between 11am and 4pm. Mozilla Hubs is a browser-based VR experience that works best with laptop or desktop computer on Firefox or Chrome browsers. Hubs also works on standalone VR headsets. Navigation and posting are more difficult on mobile devices and some older devices may not work.

On December 11, visitors can enter our digital rooms via Zoom. Find a pet and click on the photo or date/time listed in their profile box. Or view our Schedule At-a-Glance.
Feel free to say hello or ask questions! You may turn your mic or video on if you wish to engage with the pets and handlers in each room. Feel free to also use the chat function. Visitors can also watch in silence, if preferred.
And when you are done with the live animals, head over to our virtual reality Dog Days gallery to see and share pictures of your pets.
He's great at catching a ball in mid-air & will drop and roll for tummy rubs on command. He's also a CHOP therapy dog.
Duck is very social media savvy and has 60,000 followers on Instagram! Also won a hot dog eating competition a few years ago.
Belka (pictured) is a guard Pomeranian named after the second dog in space. Chaplin always wears formal wear.
Jamie, Socks and Rabbit (clockwise, from left) are all adopted from rescue groups. Jamie is 3 years old and has his Canine Good Citizen award. Socks is 6 yrs. old and was adopted last year. Rabbit, who is just visiting, will turn 1 next month. Currently they all are sheltering-in-place together. They will demonstrate for you some of their favorite homemade puzzles, games, toys and treats to show how they stay active and engaged during what might otherwise be a stressful time.
Ruby is a tripod but that doesn't slow her down: she once caught a rabbit. Zim is a big scaredy cat afraid of the garbage truck, thunder, fireworks, and the Phillie Phanatic.
Equal parts trash baby and spoiled princess, Anya enjoys bird watching, sumptuous seafood feasts, and lying on her back while tempting onlookers with her fluffy belly.
Josie is a nervous beagle who loves her Kong and fears basically everything else.
She doesn't have any teeth, so her tongue sticks out at a jaunty, adorable angle.
Anthony is a mutt rescue from the Rio Grande Valley TX who looks like a fuzzier version of Tramp (from "Lady and the Tramp") and loves to bat his eyelashes when he's asking for a hug.
Captain Jack likes to commandeer Zoom meetings, and cheese. He sits if you ask nicely.
