Equine hospital upgrades
Helen Woodward Animal Center
Helen Woodward Animal Center, established in 1972, is an organization where people help animals and animals help people.This unique nonprofit organization benefits the community by providing educational and therapeutic programs for people, as well as humane care and adoption for homeless animals.
The mission of the equine hospital is to provide an exceptional facility for the use of accredited veterinarians, enabling them to provide high-quality veterinary care for the health and welfare of the community horse population and to provide a resource for education of the public and equine professionals in matters of the health and welfare of horses. The Equine Hospital treats many race or show horses, as well as people's pets, and is equipped to perform a wide variety of medical procedures and services such as colic, fracture, and other surgeries, dental care, 24 hour nursing care, and more.
The funding provided by The Gordon and Patricia Gray Animal Welfare Foundation was used for new flooring and essential arthroscopy equipment in the hospital. The new flooring will ensure they can continue to provide a safe and sanitary facility, while the arthroscopy equipment allows veterinarians to evaluate and treat many orthopedic conditions in a minimally invasive way.
