Horses burned in chilean wildfires

$4,029 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 71 people in 22 months
We are chilean PhD students based in California, speecifically Davis, trying to collect money to support the recovery of horses burned during the worst wildlfires recorded in the history of our country. Veterinarians are placed in the disaster area but they need hay and medical supplies to help these animals. We have a counterpart in Chile (Rodrigo Zablah) that can move 280 bales 300 miles south where they are needed if we reach the campaign goal. Our target, therefore, is to fund the bales and their transportation to a town where volunteering veterinarians are helping horses. This town will be designated by the equivalent to AVMA in Chile, as they are coordinating help for animals and know where it is most needed. Moreover, with the extra funds we will work similarly to support them with medical supplies.

Money will be withdrawn by me and sent electronically to Rodrigo to get the Bales, while medical supplies will be directly bought by me through internet in a chilean supplier and pick up by veterinarians at the store.

These horses are under physical pain that needs to be relieved. We count on you and we are deeply thankful for supporting this campaing and the recovery of these suffering animals.

Currently we are talking with the chilean college of veterinarians (AVMA equivalent) to determine where to take the food and medical supplies that will be funded through your donations. Once again thank you very much.
