Response Team, October 2017. 


The AAEP Foundation’s Equine Disaster Relief Fund is accepting monetary donations to help horses affected by the California wildfires. Fund donations will be distributed among credible programs and organizations that are helping with recovery and rebuilding efforts in the aftermath and towards preparedness efforts for future disasters.

The AAEP Foundation will work with agencies and veterinary members in California to identify the needs of the equine community. Once the Foundation receives an assessment of need and distribution protocols from the agencies and veterinary members in the afflicted areas, the Foundation will work to support them with monetary and supply needs.

Additional, credible organizations also are accepting donations to support horses, animals and their caretakers impacted by these fires.
