the real ransom iii dvm emergency medical fund

Real Ransom III, DVMGreyhound Pets of America-Central Texas lost a very devoted, long time friend when Dr. Real Ransom III and his wife, Cindy, were killed in a plane crash near Houston on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2005. Dr. Ransom, founder of Great Oaks Animal Hospital, had been closely associated with GPA-Central Texas since 1992 when the group was known as GPA-Austin. Over the years he was a very generous contributor to GPA-CT's adoption program, providing services for the greyhounds at a cost most veterinary hospitals would not approach.

Additionally, he provided information and support to many of GPA-CT's members and their companion greyhounds. He is remembered for the warmth and compassion he gave, especially at times when it was his duty to deliver bad news.

To honor his commitment and service to greyhounds, the GPA-CT Board of Directors voted on Oct. 18, 2005, to rename the permanent emergency medical fund "The Real Ransom III DVM Emergency Medical Fund." All donations to the emergency medical fund are used exclusively for special needs greyhounds in foster care.

Contributions may be mailed to Greyhound Pets of America-Central Texas, P.O. Box 10069, Austin TX 78766. (Please note on your check that the contribution is for the emergency medical fund.) You may also contribute online using the PayPal link at
