Here are a few simple ways to help!

The American Association of Equine Practitioners Foundation’s Equine Disaster Relief Fund is accepting aid to help horses in Texas, Louisiana and other states affected by Hurricane Harvey. Fund donations will be distributed among credible programs and organizations that are helping with recovery and rebuilding efforts in the aftermath and toward preparedness efforts for future disasters. The AAEP Foundation will work with agencies and veterinary members of the affected states to identify the needs of the equine community.
