Welcome to the Cohn Pet Care Facility

Friday, January 29, 2021

The Cohn Pet Care Facility at Oklahoma State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine was built to serve as a permanent home for pets as well as a short- and long-term boarding facility.

One of the special programs at the Cohn is caring for pets whose owners plan in advance to ensure their beloved furry family members are cared for in the owner’s absence. An endowment, paid up front, ensures funds are available for food, shelter and veterinary medical care for the life of your pet. Pets can reside at the Cohn or the facility can help your pet be adopted by a loving family.

Boarding is available for dogs and cats. The facility has 58 dog kennel runs both indoor and outdoor. The outdoor runs are 10 feet in length allowing plenty of room for your dog. Each kennel can house up to two medium size dogs. Dogs have full access to the Cohn’s yard at least twice daily. A bath and nail trim can be provided upon request. Cats are housed at night in kennels located in a room away from the dog kennels. However, during the day, cats have an opportunity to spend time in the cat playroom where they can roam freely and bask in the sunshine.

Thanks to donations from Ms. Vicki Palmer, a living room area has been decorated to create a “just like home” atmosphere where people can enjoy visiting with dogs or cats living at the facility.
