Phi Mu Epsilon Nu supports two local programs in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Phi Mu Epsilon Nu supports the Humane Society of Stillwater, as well as the Payne County Youth Center. The missions of each of these amazing organizations are listed below.
The Humane Society of Stillwater is a nonprofit, adoption guaranteed animal shelter that serves homeless dogs and cats in the Stillwater community.
The purpose of the Humane Society of Stillwater is to facilitate the placement of stray and unwanted animals and pets in desirable homes; to establish and maintain an animal shelter and associated procedures which promote the health, care and handling, and prevent over population of cats and dogs. The animals in our care are never euthanized merely because we lack space or because the animal’s stay with us has exceeded a predefined amount of time. We spay/neuter and vaccinate all of the animals in our care and do our best to give them a loving home until they are adopted into a home of their own.
