Help Equine Tornado Victims

March 5 2012

Are you looking for a way to help the victims of Friday's tornadoes? 

The Kentucky Horse Council is collecting donations for our U.S. Equine Disaster Relief Fund, which will help provide feed & supplies to horses affected by the tornadoes.

The U.S. Disaster Relief Fund exists to support state and local efforts to provide feed and housing for affected horses in natural disasters.  We provide the funding to organizations such as a county extension service, and they in turn coordinate the relief efforts, such as purchasing hay, for owners/horses that need it.

We will be providing financial assistance to many organizations this week with the U.S. Disaster Relief Fund, and will need financial support to continue these efforts.  If you would like to contribute to the fund, please click here to make a tax deductible donation:  The horses of Kentucky will thank you!

Do You or Your County Need Assistance?

If  you are an individual looking for assistance due to last week's tornadoes, please contact our office at (859) 367-0509 or

If you are a state or local agency who would like to help provide assistance to equines in your area, please click here for a printable pdf application form:  Fill out the form and send it back to our office, and we'll be glad to help.
