Friends of Harrison Fund

Friends Of Harrison Fund

     The "Friends of Harrison Fund" was started in memory of Harrison, our loving friend and office cat who passed away in February 2008 from Cancer.  Harrison was brought into Oasis Animal Hospital in 2003 after he was abandoned in an Apartment complex nearby.
     Harrison was initially very scared, and had obviously been abused by the people who abandoned him, as he would not allow anyone to pet him, and he was very quick to defend himself with his claws (and at 18 pounds of muscle, that could get very scary).  After almost 9 months of slowly working with Harrison, he finally realized that people could be good, and soon he became the first 'purrson' that many people met when they came in the door.  His life's mission was to help other animal's feel at home when they came to the clinic, and he also loved to help the owners when it came time to pay the bills (sometimes, he would lay down on any money placed on the desk, and would have to be lifted in order for the bill to be paid).
    The Friends of Harrison Fund is used to provide care for abandoned and stray animals in need of medical care, through Oasis Animal Hospital. 100% of all donations to this fund are used to support animals in need, and for Cancer Research for animals.
     Since starting the fund, the Friends of Harrison have raised over $9,500, helping over 200 animals, and also have donated more than $3,000 directly to the Oncology Department at Kansas State University's College of Veterinary Medicine. 
     Thanks to all who have supported this fund in the past, and to those who will continue supporting it in the future.
    If you would like to donate to the Friends of Harrison Fund, you can do so next time you are visiting Oasis Animal Hospital.
A Prayer for Animals
Hear our humble prayer, O God,
For our friends the animals,
especially for animals who are suffering;
for any that are hunted or lost
or deserted or frightened or hungry;
for all that must be put to death.
We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity,
and for those who deal with them we ask
a heart of compassion
and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals,
and so to share the blessings of the merciful.
