The center will serve as a resource for Oregon State University (OSU) students who will study at the on-site veterinary hospital.

OHS must raise $786,500 of the total amount needed to build the 22,000-square-foot animal hospital before the projected ground-breaking date in June.

The new addition to OHS will allow the society to provide on-demand veterinary services for the first time.

The current facility, which spans 46,000 square feet, was built in 2000 for $8.2 million, which was raised entirely by private donations.

OSU will supply a staff veterinarian while the OHS plans to hire another DVM for the clinic. Students rotating through the clinic will be housed in a dorm on the premises.
