FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 31, 2005

Safe Havens and Veterinary Services Needed for Hurricane

Katrina's Equine Refugees

Place Your Facility on the USEF Hurricane Equine Relief List

(Lexington, KY) - As Americans view the newscasts of the

devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina it is clear that both humans

and animals require immediate emergency relief from not only official

agencies but from the generosity of individuals.

If you have a facility or pasture which you can offer to house refugee

horses and ponies, victims of Hurricane Katrina, please email your

name, address, phone number and email address to kcadams@usef.org , or

at 859-225-6993, (please email if at all possible as we expect a heavy

load of calls.)

If you can volunteer veterinary services please submit your contact

information. The USEF is posting a listing by state of these safe

havens for horses and ponies on our website. The list will be

accessed by going to www.usef.org, on the right side of the homepage

click on Hurricane Katrina Equine Relief. It is expected to be

operational by tonight, August 31st and will serve as a master list to

help horse owners in Katrina's path find help. Other equine

organizations wishing to assist the effort and link to the list should

also email kcadams@usef.org.

We urge the participation of anyone who has the space, veterinary

expertise and tenderness of heart to help these equine refugees.

END

Thanks for that. I don't think that info has been posted anywhere here.

AMHA and Chances Rescue may want to hook up with them!
