The American Association of Equine Practitioners 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 supply needs as well.

To support the needs of these equine victims, please donate online here.

Additional credible organizations accepting donations also are listed on the Foundation website as giving options.

Donations by mail can be sent to: Equine Disaster Relief Fund, AAEP Foundation, 4033 Iron Works Parkway, Lexington, Ky., 40511; (800) 443-0177 (U.S. only) or (859) 233-0147.
