Horses in Crises:
Hurricanes, Wildfires, Floods and Impacts from Coronavirus

The Foundation for the Horse and COVID-19 (coronavirus)

The Foundation for the Horse provides emergency relief by deploying essential resources in areas hit by natural disasters like hurricane, wildfires, floods and tornadoes.

Because of its magnitude, the COVID-19 disease outbreak is considered a natural disaster. Help us prepare and have funds on hand to support those in need within the equine community during this public health emergency.

Happening Now: Help needed during and after disease outbreak for horses and caretakers

As the CDC, government agencies, and medical physicians work to contain the spread of COVID-19, the equine community and AAEP-member veterinarians in particular continue to care for horses while taking the necessary precautions to remain safe.

Devoted to the health and welfare of horses, The Foundation for the Horse stands ready to assist equines and their caretakers during this crisis.

The Foundation’s Equine Disaster Relief Fund serves an important role as is a source of emergency support for horses and working equids impacted by natural disasters like the coronavirus outbreak.

Please consider making a gift to support the current and anticipated needs of animals and people within the equine community impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Ten days after Hurricane Maria, we got our first container full of feed, and with it a stock of medical supplies specifically from The Foundation for the Horse. Without those large organizations, I don’t think we would have been able to get as
much help as we did.”
