Thanks to the generous donors who gave to the OSU Animal Relief Fund, Oklahoma State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine was able to treat animal victims of the tornado this spring.
The OSU Animal Relief Fund was established in 2013 to help pay for the surgical and veterinary medical treatment of both large and small animals hurt in Oklahoma disasters such as wildfires, floods or tornadoes.
On the night of May 4, 2022, a tornado struck Tecumseh, Oklahoma. Amongst the damage was a badly injured mare and foal owned by Nona Buley of Rockin BB Ranch. Buley brought her horses to the OSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital for treatment. The veterinarians were able to operate on Buley’s horses at no cost to her. A month later, she happily reported the horses recovered well, and the aftermath of the injuries is no longer visible.
During an already challenging time of natural disaster, the relief fund can help make things a little easier for animal owners. To support the OSU Animal Relief Fund to help ensure any animal in need is cared for, please call 405-385-0715 or donate online at OSU Animal Relief Fund.
