we raised $19,000 with your help!

The wildfire season usually starts in summer and runs into early fall in California, but low humidity, dry conditions and warm fast-moving winds created ideal conditions for blazes to spread. Across the state, tens of thousands of acres burn with images emerging of horses being evacuated, roaming free or fleeing approaching fires.

Stories of valiant rescue volunteers and welcoming make-shift shelters abound throughout ravaged California communities – all focused on helping abandoned and displaced equines. The rescue efforts are very complicated because often animals caught up in fires flee or hide, especially when injured.

Brooke USA is committed to help, and with your support we raised $19,000 through our California Equine Emergency Fund. We are currently establishing where to direct the funds so that we can best help the most equines in need.

Funds raised will be donated to organizations directly helping relief and recovery efforts.

Every time there’s an emergency surrounding horses, the equestrian community rallies together. It’s always complicated and difficult, but I am always impressed how this community just jumps in and helps. These generous people move heaven and earth to make sure horses are safe.
