Animal Relief Fund

The OSU Animal Relief Fund was established after deadly tornadoes came through Oklahoma in 2013. Just a few years later, an EF3 tornado traveled through Sulphur, Oklahoma and resulted in several severe animal injuries. Seven horses from that area were treated by the OSU Veterinary Medical Hospital at no cost to owners.

The hospital staff treats victims from many storms with their patients ranging from wildlife such as turtles and chickens to family pets like cats and dogs.  

The OSU Animal Relief Fund covers the cost of hospitalization, diagnostic evaluation, and medical & surgical treatment. When people have lost their homes, maybe even their livelihood, it is a comfort to know that the OSU Veterinary Medical Hospital can provide the care their animals need without adding another burden to the family. This is all thanks to donors like you.

"This disaster relief fund allows us to treat these animals while their owners go on to rebuild their lives."

- Dr. Dan Burba, DVM, DACVS
