Hurricane Michael Horse Relief Fund

$23,463 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 247 people in 7 months
My name is Bess Darrow. I am a veterinarian in North Central Florida (Williston/Ocala). A large percentage of our clients live in the part of the state damaged by the hurricane. My veterinary clinic, Tune Ups Veterinary Equine Services, is organizing and sending volunteers into the areas of the Florida Panhandle affected by Hurricane Michael to assist with moving their horses and livestock to safe areas and to provide temporary housing for animals.
We will also be giving veterinary care as needed and assisting in repairing hurricane damage on horse farms.
We are in need of people to help with transporting horses and bringing in supplies such as feed, hay, water, shavings, fuel, generators, etc. , as well as providing stalls or pastures for displaced livestock. A bulk of the work will be moving debris and trees off of fence lines, barns and driveways.
Additionally, we have started to provide and set up tent canopies as temporary horse shelters for animals who have no barn or shelter. We are collecting and distributing donations of horse blankets and other items to those in need. As hay supplies in the hurricane area have completely dwindled, we are attempting to network with hay suppliers to deliver hay to the area, as this seems to be the number one need for the area.
Thank you all for your continued support!

Hi Everyone!
Meet Boo, our very own Hurricane Michael survivor, (and the most recent addition to our farm), and I are headed to the Panhandle in the morning. He is a very good elf and a very good sport! He is helping me distribute toys, food, clothing and warm horse blankets to the victims of the Hurricane!
Happy Holidays from Boo and Dr.Bess!

Our non-profit, Houses4Horses, is heading back in to the Panhandle this weekend to deliver donated presents for kids, supplies, feed, hay, gate panels and carport tent structures that will provide shelter for many horses and animals. We will be throwing a big holiday party complete with a food truck and a “train” of holiday decorated horse trailers, each hauling a miniature horse, cow or donkey, or maybe even a baby goat! These survivors deserve some down time to enjoy the holidays! If you are in the area, please join us Sunday 12/23/18 from 2-6 pm at the Sheriff Posse Barn on Nehi Road!
Thanks for your contributions!
Dr.Bes
