2009 Milestones

  • The National Center for Veterinary Parasitology opens at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater to train the next generation of veterinary parasitologists. The Kirkpatrick Foundation was a grant supporter of the veterinary parasitologists.
  • The “Spay or Pay” ordinance is passed in Oklahoma City, waiving impoundment fees for pet owners if they agree to have their pet spayed or neutered before release.
