Horse Council BC: Update on Fire Assistance

UPDATE FROM HORSE COUNCIL BC, JULY 17

Horse Council BC has developed forms to aid in tracking horses; for housing and hauling. We also are collecting donations and where possible, offering direct financial aid or delivery of hay or supplies. Please pass this information and attached forms along to your relevant contacts and if possible post on your websites. For those able to house or in need of evacuation we asking them to register with BC Equine Livestock Animal Evacuation Group they have an excellent mapping system to collect data.  

 We are trying to help coordinate the massive logistics involved and offer a stronger networking system.  There are groups doing amazing work that are inundated with the sheer volume of everything  required during the emergency.

HCBC is able to offer resources and we want to assist everyone in their efforts as best we can . Please don’t hesitate to contact us. There is also an online data base on the HCBC site for recording where horses are housed and each horses description and ownership information. In order to track and verify information you must log in and create a profile but you do not need to be a HCBC member to use this system.

UPDATE FROM HORSE COUNCIL, JULY 11

Horse Council BC has been in touch with a few of the evacuation centres that are being used for horses and other livestock such as the PGX in Prince George, KXA in Kamloops, the Williams Lake Fair Grounds, Barrier Exhibition Grounds and waiting to hear back from the Stockyards in Thompson Nicola.

 
We are concentrating on helping the evacuation centre with their resources.  So far we have sent 700 bales of hay arriving tonight to the PGX, gas cards to the emergency coordinators in both PG and Kamloops.  We are working on securing some hay and a few supplies for the KXA site along with supplies for Barrier Exhibition Grounds.

 
We will be accepting donations beginning tomorrow as people are looking for a way to help.  We are not wanting to get in the way of the local coordination that is working.  Please let us know at the Horse Council office if you know something we should be aware of (contact the Horse Council office at 604-856-4304, Toll Free: 1-800-345-8055).


We hoping for the best possible outcome for everyone affected.

Regards,

Lisa Laycock
Executive Director
Horse Council BC
