Thanks to the OSU Animal Relief Fund, veterinary specialists at Oklahoma State University’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences are available to treat animal victims of Oklahoma’s recent tornados at no cost to the owners as long as funds are available. The fund was established following the May 2013 storms.

Currently there are five adult horses and two foals from the Sulphur, Okla., area being treated at OSU’s Veterinary Medical Hospital.

Owners with animals injured during the storms may call 405-744-7000 to schedule an appointment. Those who want to help animal victims may donate at OSU Animal Relief Fund.
