Harveigh’s Heroes was established in memory of Harveigh, a very special calf who was born during Hurricane Harvey in a rapidly flooding pasture, requiring bottle feeding and extended medical care. Harveigh became a member of the Canton family and had a particularly strong bond with Sealy, the family’s pit bull. She soon became a celebrity, with a popular Facebook page, winning the hearts of all who heard her story.
This fund was not only created in Harveigh’s memory, but is also in honor of Dr. Evelyn MacKay, a resident in Large Animal Internal Medicine, who played a critical role in Harveigh’s healing. Harveigh passed away suddenly in 2018, but her legacy lives on in the animals she helps through Harveigh’s Heroes.
- The animal must be a patient of the Large Animal Hospital at Texas A&M.
- The treatment must be performed at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital.
- The fund may contribute up to 50% of the total cost, with a maximum of $2,000 per case (may be adjusted for inflation in consultation with the donors if living and of sound mind).
