Arnall Community Fund Award
Nexus Equine was founded in 2016 to fill a massive void in equine welfare in Oklahoma. Due to the continued and overwhelming capacity issues faced by existing local animal welfare resources, Nexus expanded its mission to include dogs and cats to close the gap that has been identified. This grant will support operations and programmatic expenses for this program. The grant will also support construction of both a kennel facility and isolation - spay/neuter building. The program offers medical care and long-distance transport for the animals that will be placed for adoption, either locally or through a receiving partner shelter. Nexus partners with smaller local municipal shelters in both Oklahoma City as well as with rural communities to transfer and transport animals while addressing access to affordable vet care in areas where resources are scarce.
The Arnall Community Funds are administered through Oklahoma City Community Foundation (OCCF) and provide grants to nonprofit organizations throughout the state of Oklahoma that are working to improve outcomes for individuals, children and families involved with animal welfare and in the child welfare and criminal justice systems. The OCCF staff will manage the grant administration process and all grantmaking decisions will be made by OCCF Trustees. Learn more about the process.
