AAEP Foundation Fund Established to Aid Hurricane Victims

The American Association of Equine Practitioners Foundation (AAEPF) today announced the creation of an Equine Disaster Relief Fund to help with recovery and rebuilding efforts that are to follow from Hurricane Katrina and future disasters that may occur. These funds will only be used to benefit the welfare of horses affected by disasters.

"The AAEP and the equine veterinary community are saddened by the tragic loss of life and horrendous destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina," said Scott Palmer, VMD, AAEP president. "We are compelled to reach out, together with our members, horse owners and industry leaders, as part of the effort to support the human and equine victims of this tragedy."

The AAEP Foundation will work with agencies and veterinary members from the region affected by these disasters to identify the needs of the equine community.
