Thomas Fire Horse Rehabilitation

The Thomas Fire started on Monday December 4th. Within a few hours it had ripped through 30,000 acres, destroying everything in its path. Though the fire seems to have moved through our area for now, we are left with heavy smoke and ash filling the valley. Due to the other 6 wildfires spread along Southern California, evacuation doesn’t seem to be an option. The fire, currently at 132,000 acres burned, is only 10% controlled with hazardous winds continuing.

My name is Zoey Luna, and I‘m from Carpinteria, with horses living in Ventura. I am one of the many horse owners who’s been effected by this tragedy.  I am seeking help for treatment for my horses and other horses effected by the Thomas Fire. The smoke content and ash/debris filling the horses lungs can be critical. They are put at an high risk for damage to their cornea and eyes, with a possibility of loss of vision, as well as respiratory issues such as pneumonia, with the chance of permanent damage. The  best treatment is a Nebulizer. The machine despenses medication directly into their airways to be carried to the lungs. With this, we plan to take the machine to numerous facilities to treat the horses that have been effected by this tragedy.  Once we have enough raised we will buy the machine and purchase medication from the vet to administer to horses effected by this fire. Starting with the barns located off the 33 we will work our way back to ranch along Oak View and even into the Santa Paula area. The machine isn’t cheap and the medication isn’t either, so we plea for your help. Thank you.
