Dr. Terry Morris, D.V.M., Ph.D.

 

A native of Durham NC, Dr. Terry Morris received an M.S. in Biology at Purdue University and her D.V.M. at Tuskegee University. She completed her internship and residency in large animal medicine and surgery at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Because of her desire to integrate her veterinary skills with her love for science, Dr. Morris returned to school to complete her Ph.D. in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Missouri-Columbia. 

 

In service to her community, Dr. Morris:

  • Served as a service dog training assistant for EENP, to provide service dogs to assist individuals with mobility impairments and diabetes.

  • Is actively serving as a volunteer for CHC.

  • Is past Chairman of the Health Committee for DCABP

 

Dr. Morris is extremely passionate about the welfare of veterans suffering from emotional and/or physical disabilities and the animals that are suffering and euthanized at animal shelters due to over population. 

 

She dedicated the Vets To Vets United, Inc. program to her father, who died during his tour of duty as a Captain in the U.S. Air Force, and her sister, who served as a Captain in the U.S. Air Force. Her father and sister are both graduates from the Tuskegee University Air Force pilot training program. Her sister was the first female to graduate from the Air Force ROTC pilot training program at Tuskegee University. 

 

Dr. Morris recognizes the healing power of the animal-human bond. She is thankful to God and is honored to have this opportunity to serve our U.S. Military Veterans and rescue animals, both of which need love, companionship, and healing.
