The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Foundation and other Louisiana veterinary organizations are seeking donations to assist with the rescue and care for horses impacted by the current floowing in Louisiana as well as for future preparedness planning and education for first responders.

To assist with immeciate veterinary needs for animals donate to the Louisiana State University Foundation, www.lsufoundation.org.

To assist with the rescuing and sheltering of animals you can donate to the Louisiana State Animal Rescue Team, a program developed by the Louisiana Veterinary Medical Association, https://lvma.org/LVMA/LSART_Donations.

To assist these and other horses impacted by floods, fires, and other natural disaster through preparedness education and  training, donate to the AAEP Foundation's disaster relief fund, www4.secure.checkout.com/AAEPFoundation/inforr

While certain veterinary supplies to care for animals are needed, especially horses and farm animals, cash donations are preferred.  However, if you have supplies you are willing to donate, please contact Keith Lkeine at the AAEP Foundation, 859-233-0147, or kkleine@aaep.org to offer your assistance.  A list of needed supplies and details can be provided to you.

The AAEP Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization created in 1994, serves as the charitable arm of the American Association of Equine Practitioners to improve the welfare of the horse.  Since its inception, the Foundation has allocated more than $3.3 million to support its mission.

Large Animal Rescue training pays off!

Two years ago the New Mexico Horse Council along with Corrales Horse and Mule People (C.H.A.M. P.) helped sponsor a community Large Animal Rescue pilot program.  The training was presented to first responders by Code 3 of Denver.  That training paid off July 7 when a horse was rescued from an irrigation ditch near Corrales Road and Alameda.  The rescue harness used on the horse was obtained by the Corrales Fire Department with the help of NMHC and C.H.A.M.P.  A story on the July 7 rescue appeared in the July 9 Rio West section of the Albuquerque Journal.
