As a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit equine protection agency committed to the prevention, rescue and rehabilitation of neglected, abused and homeless equine in the Galveston, Texas area, we are preparing to mobilize quickly in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey.
In emergencies like Hurricane Harvey, we rescue horses left behind after their owners flee to shelters or elsewhere seeking safety. We take in the most vulnerable equine, provide often urgently needed medical and other care, and reunite them with their owner, or, if necessary, try to find them a new home. We also travel into areas threatened by flooding and use special equipment to bring horses to safety.
Habitat for Horses has a memorandum of understanding with the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office and we are the lead the organization in equine search and rescue in the county.
Hurricane Harvey hit us far worse than anyone expected and more rain is expected. We stand ready to do what we do best: rescue and rehabilitate equine in need in the Galveston, Texas area at a time when they need it most.
