The ultimate goal of our efforts is to rehabilitate and release animals back to the wild.
Our research helps progress veterinary medicine with a focus on wildlife conservation and rehabilitation.
Veterinary students learn many new skills in our wildlife service. This experience is directly applicable to other species and is an important part to becoming a well-rounded veterinarian.
We Need Your Help
The Oklahoma State University Veterinary Medical Hospital provides care for sick and injured wildlife free of charge to the public. However, the treatments provided to wildlife must be covered by donations as the hospital does not receive any designated state funds for this purpose. The wildlife service treats approximately 500 animals per year at an average cost of $80 per animal, adding up to $40,000 per year. Your gift, no matter the size, will help us care for these wonderful animals when they need us most.
Gifts to this project through the OSU Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, are tax deductible as allowed by law. If you have questions about your gift, please contact the OSU Foundation at 800.622.4678.
