A Legacy of Care
Pets are an important part of our lives. They provide comfort, happiness and unconditional love. As members of the family, they depend on us for lifelong care.
Often pet owners are concerned about what will happen to their animals if they can no longer care for them. The Oklahoma State University’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences (CVHS) has constructed a facility and developed a program to assure lifelong care for beloved family pets.
A generous donation from the estate of Ms. Leah Cohn Arendt, matched by OSU funds, has enabled the CVHS to construct a life-care center for companion animals. In 1998, the Cohn family dream was brought to life through the establishment of the Cohn Family Shelter for Small Animals.
What Are The Facilities Like?
Pet owners can feel secure in knowing that their pets will receive the love, care and attention they had always enjoyed at home.
The center is located on eight acres of land north of the CVHS Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. The 6,600 square foot facility is designed as a home with some very special features:
- a playroom where visitors and veterinary students can enjoy the animals
- areas for examination, treatment and grooming
- outdoor runs and separate kennels
- apartment for live-in attendants that provide 24-hour care
Cohn Shelter perpetual animal care is currently under evaluation. Please check back soon for new materials and information.
