Five Veterinarians Inducted Into Veterinary Honor Roll

ENGLEWOOD (CO) -- Morris Animal Foundation proudly announces the induction of five veterinarians into its Veterinary Honor Roll.

To date, 155 veterinary professionals have been inducted into Morris Animal Foundation's Veterinary Honor Roll. Donors nominate honorees by contributing $500 or more to the Foundation on behalf of each recipient. Each honoree receives a plaque and recognition on Morris Animal Foundation's Wall of Honor.

Glen Pfefferkorn of Dallas, Ore., nominated Susan J. Tornquist, DVM, PhD, diplomate-ACVP and an assistant professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Oregon State University, for the Honor Roll because of her studies on llamas and alpacas. Pfefferkorn is president of Willamette Valley Llama Association.

Claire Powell of Hilton Head Island, S.C., added Cindy Stubbs, DVM, MA, diplomate-ACVIM, of North Georgia Veterinary Specialty Care to the Honor Roll. Dr. Stubbs earned her doctorate of veterinary medicine from North Carolina State University in 1995.

C. Jane and Al Boeck of Blue Springs, Mo., nominated three veterinarians at Crysler Animal Hospital in Independence, Mo.: Drs. W. Wayne Fry, G.W. Buckaloo, Jr., and A. Jay Schweizer.

"These three men have gone above and beyond to care for our animals," the Boecks said. "There's no one else we would trust with the care of our dogs."
