LSU SVM Flood Fund Animal Treatment

$54,027 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 604 people in 24 months
Southeast Louisiana is experiencing a crisis unlike no other. While Hurricanes are not uncommon, the flooding event that occured this past weekend is unprecedented. As a result, tens of thousands of Louisiana citizens have been displaced, losing homes, cars, and all their personal items. Many of these displaced citizens are also pet (dog, cat, exotic) or animal (horse, farm animal) owners, and these animals are suffering and need medical care. The LSU School of Veterinary Medicine is currently being referred small and large animal cases in need of a range of medical and surgical needs. Because of their losses, many of these owners cannot afford veterinary care. This request is to provide financial resources for the direct medical and surgical care of animals presented to the LSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH). Your gift will also be used to cover hospitalization for these patients.   The need for this support  is now because these cases are being presented as this request is being written.  These families have already endured significant hardship, and we know your gift will help lessen their burden by providing the best care possible for these important family members. These families and the LSU VTH thank you in advance for your generosity and support.

I want to thank everyone for supporting us during this time. While it will be many months before things return to normal in Baton Rouge, I know for many your help has made the task a little less arduous by supporting the furry members of many different families affected by the flooding. In all the LSU VTH has raised and spent over $100,000 with our many partners to care for all creatures great and small that presented to our hospital. Again, many thanks to all of you who supported this endeavor!! You touched many hearts with your compassion for both the humans and animals affected by the flood. We should never forget our potential to make change.

I want to thank everyone for their support!! I could not be more proud of my species!!! It has truly been a beautiful experience for me to have so many dear friends support this endeavor, as well as having been given the opportunity to meet so many new friends because of their support for animals and their caretakers. These are the reasons my optimism flourishes.....these are the reasons I have great hope for our future!!

Dear All

I am so grateful for all your donations! We are almost to our goal and we continue to manage cases coming through in need. For those that haven't seen what the devastation has done, I have included a typical picture of a street in Denham Springs showing what has happened to the houses. Imagine 20 different parishes being affected.

However, we are approaching it with a "Geaux Tigers!" attitude!

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!

Keep up the great work. Victims of the floods can rest a little easier knowing that their fur (feathers...) family members are getting great care!
