|Meet Sweet Evie!!!|
Evie arrived at Oklahoma State University’s Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (OSUVTH) in May 2013. She was found wandering the streets of Shawnee, Okla., after a tornado blew through leaving a trail of destruction. The 2-year-old spayed black and tan shepherd was full of ticks and tested positive for heartworm.
Thanks to many generous donors who contributed to the OSU Animal Relief Fund, Evie was treated at no charge at OSUVMTH and every attempt was made to find her owners. However, no one ever claimed this sweet girl.
So, instead of giving up, Evie is giving back!
She has been adopted by OSU employee, Lorinda Schrammel, and is living the good life with her new family. Evie currently spends her time brightening the lives of others in Human Resources. She will be used to welcome new employees to OSU and will serve as a greeter to those who visit the office. She has already developed her own fan club and has visitors on a regular basis, some of which bring her treats in addition to lots of pats and hugs. And after all this sweet girl has been through, she deserves it.
“Evie is a wonderful dog. She loves people and really thrives on any attention students or fellow clinicians give her,” says OSU veterinarian, Dr. Lara Sypniewski. “She will make a great therapy dog and models exactly what we are trying to create with the Pet Therapy Program at OSU.”
