Foundation for the Horse provides tornado relief

The devastating tornadoes that ravaged Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia last weekend have also impacted equine lives. The Foundation for the Horse is working with caretakers on the ground to provide relief and assistance for equines needing care due to injury and other needs following the tornadoes.

The Foundation’s disaster relief fund provides immediate care for horses affected by natural disasters. Sadly, dramatic weather events continue to wreak havoc across various regions of the U.S. and other parts of the world, which means equines are in harm’s way.

As with the recent tornadoes across the South, The Foundation works with agencies and veterinary members in the impacted areas to identify the needs of the equine community. Supplies are not being accepted as The Foundation has other methods to gather needed supplies quickly. As The Foundation receives additional information regarding needs for the region, it will work to support non-profits and those affected through provision of monetary and other resources as needed.

“The Foundation and the equine veterinary community know the tragic loss of life and incredible destruction impacting horses and their caretakers in the South,” said Foundation Development Council Chair Dr. Leslie Easterwood. “We are compelled to reach out, together with our members, horse owners and industry leaders, as part of the effort to proactively support the disaster’s equine victims.”
