Helping Louisiana Horse Victims of Hurricane Katrina

There has been a tremendous outpouring of sympathy and concern for the horse victims of Hurricane Katrina. In Louisian, veterinarians and staff of the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine, stepped up in the immediate aftermath of the storm to start assiting animals and their owners.

Rustin Moore, DVM, PhD, Dipl. ACVS, Director of the vet school's Equine Health Studies Program, said, "The best way for people wanting to help the Louisiana horse victims of  Hurricane Katrina with rescue, recovery, veterinary care, and sheltering, is to make a monetary contribution and to make sure the money gets to the right place to help the horses."

You can make a donation to the rescue and continued care of horses by making a check payable to: LVMA Equine Committee, Memo Line of Check: Horse Hurricane Relief; mail to: Dr. Sonny Corley, Co-Char, LVMA Equine Committee, 121 E. Gloria Switch, Lafayette, LA  70507.
