President, Human Animal Link of Oklahoma

Our name, Human Animal Link of Oklahoma Foundation, speaks to the fact that animals and human
beings do form a link with one another for the benefit of both. A non-judgmental force, our pets, can best calm most emotional and physical challenges we might experience. They are quiet in voice,but speak with strength and comfort by presence alone. They are incapable of making false promises as to our welfare. They are forever listening even though we may not make much sense. They offer moments of simple joy and peace,reaching into the minds and hearts to communicate with people who just may have shut out the human factor.How quickly they forget our shortcomings and focus on only our greatest strengths.

You just can't lose with that kind of relationship!

  • Summer Social 2014

    Thanks to Judge Noma Gurich and her husband, John Miley, for hosting a cordial, amusing, pleasing social at their home. The day before the party, John took Noma to the emergency room after an unexpected accident. John undoubtedly did much of the house prep work and still was an enthusiastic host. We appreciate you both!

    Members brought potluck dishes, mostly homemade. No one left hungry! With the house well designed for entertaining, guests could mingle from room to room. Some, captivated by the golf tournament, stopped in front of the television for a few intense moments.

    About forty-six members and guests attended. Those seen included the following.

    Trey & Susan Bize
