Sue Meyer is leaving a legacy of lifesaving in honor of her
Basenji “brother” Murphy. The Oshkosh Area Humane Society was recently able to purchase a new animal transport vehicle with funds raised by the “For the Love of Murphy” campaign which matched dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000. “We often transport animals in from other area shelters that are full so this means we can help even more.” Geiger also points out the van will also be used in times of crisis. If there’s a house fire, or other situation where multiple animals need to be moved to safety, we can help.”
The shelter’s most recent vehicle broke down on September 15, on the way to the annual Walk for the Animals, and was been deemed beyond repair. OAHS staff has had to use their personal vehicles to transport animals for a variety of reasons including bringing animals to offsite veterinary clinics for medical care and picking up animals found as strays.
“A safe, reliable transport van is absolutely critical in continuing our Lifesaving Mission. How wonderful it was inspired by a beloved animal companion. We really can’t thank Sue and our community enough for making this happen. It’s really about continuing the legacy of love for Murphy and helping thousands of other animals in his honor. It’s an extraordinary gift.” says Geiger.
