It was exactly a year ago that we helped Jackie and Sugar from the Louisiana floods…
Now, we are hoping to help another set of 40+ horses who were plucked from the malignant high waters from Hurricane Harvey and are now waiting for their skin to slough off – and other horribly painful gouges and horrific conditions.
PLEASE HELP these incredible vets – Kris Anderson, DVM in Santa Fe, Texas (near Houston) and by Dr. Ben Buchanan, DVM from Brazos Valley Equine Hospital – who are doing this on their own dime. Many of these 40+ horses were found wandering, owner surrendered or owners who have been devastated and without funds to care for their horses.
All donations will go directly to these vet hospitals and to these horses. ALSO, Brazos Valley Equine Hospital (FaceBook linked here) is large and has a backstock of supplies/antibiotics – they are currently helping many vets in the area who are not able to get supplies due to high water. They are giving supplies away to whomever needs them.
These Docs are angels. Thank you.
All donations are 100% tax deductible. Please help us help them. Thank you in advance.
Please forward. I know we are late in the Harvey donation cycle, but these horses are just now coming onto our radar. Thank you!

JACKIE – the only one of her group to survive…
She has the same name and is the same Pinto color as the horse named Jackie last year in Louisana. This is Jackie from Houston. She was one of 6 horses stranded in 5-6′ high water. All died except for this mare. Incredible. She is a fighter.
Jackie loves to eat. Her high appetite makes the vets feel hopeful.
BUBBA GUM AND BREEZY – hung up on barbed wire, in 4′ of water.
Bubba Gum and Breezy are young horses who lived together in Houston. They were hung up on a barbed wire fence in 4′ of water for days.
The photos aren’t showing the degree of ligament and soft tissue damage the vets describe, so I put in an arrow. These guys can hardly walk right now. They had to be helped into the rescue trailer because they couldn’t push themselves up.
The vet said they ‘bunny hopped’ into the trailer to save themselves.
JOEY – HE LOST HIS BEST FRIEND, TOO – alone for a week in this condition…
This one is really sad. In the town next to the chemical plant that exploded, everyone had to evacuate without notice. No one could move their animals. Police wouldn’t get back in to help their animals.
This is Joey. His owner had to leave him and his jenny best friend during the evacuation. The jenny drown.
Joey was alone, for a week, with her dead next to him. He is hopelessly depressed (as is the donkey way with loss) and needs extensive, long term treatment for all four legs. He isn’t weight bearing on his left rear.
His owner cannot afford his treatment.
We would be helping Joey and his owner, for sure.
PLEASE HELP US HELP THESE HORSE AND 42 MORE … BEING TREATED BY THESE TWO INCREDIBLE HOUSTON VETS!
