SUMMER RAFFO PERISHED.  SHE LEFT 20 HORSES AT HOME, WAITING FOR HER RETURN.

Of those unfortunate people caught at the wrong place, wrong time… Summer Raffo had just left her house 15 minutes earlier to make a trimming appointment.

Her brother found Summer, expired in her truck, 200 feet from the highway.  Swept away.

Summer had 20 beloved horses at home.

Samantha, Summer’s best friend, is caring for Summer’s horses and will give us photos and information as the month progresses.  Right now, Summer’s family is overwhelmed a too consumed to care for the horses.

Understood.

The Bucket Fund is collecting for any needs of Summer’s horses…

Can we help relieve the burden of 20 horses to feed and upkeep from her grieving family?

ALL THE OTHERS… LOST AND HOUSED AT THE FAIRGROUNDS

There are several other horses lost and/or displaced who are temporarily housed at the local Fairgrounds.  Some of them have families that have lost everything, some are lost and unclaimed.

Many food donations have arrived for the Fairground horses, but if any horses are found in need medically or otherwise –  our contact at NorthWest Equine Stewardship will keep us informed.  We can help them, too!

CAN WE HELP SUMMER’S HORSES AND THE LOST HORSES?

I would really like to make a difference here.  I’d like to make sure Summer can rest knowing her animals have an abundance of care available.

No one ever wants to be swept away, never able to care for their beloved animals again… I want all of those souls to rest in peace.

    I am a loyal follower of Horse and Man,I am also a resident of Washington state. I used to live in the Oso area, I taught school near there. It is a remote area, but it is filled with great people, who love their animals. This situation is so devastating it is hard to put into words. I knew there would be volunteers that would step up to help the animals, they need so much support. They don’t understand what’s happened, you can see it in their eyes. Thank you for making these animals a priority, I never thought about Horse and Man coming to the rescue effort. THANK YOU!
