Horses Impacted by Floods in Louisiana in Need

The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Foundation and other Louisiana veterinary organizations are seeking donations to assist with the rescue and care of horses impacted by the flooding in Louisiana as well as for future preparedness planning and education for first responders.

To assist with animals’ immediate veterinary needs, donate to the Louisiana State University Foundation

To assist with the rescuing and sheltering of animals, donate to the Louisiana State Animal Rescue Team, a program developed by the Louisiana Veterinary Medical Association. 

To assist these and other horses impacted by floods, fires, and other natural disaster through preparedness education and training, donate to the AAEP Foundation’s disaster relief fund

While certain veterinary supplies to care for animals are needed, especially horses and farm animals, monetary donations are preferred. However, if you have supplies you are willing to donate, please contact Keith Kleine at the AAEP Foundation at 859/233-0147 or kkleine@aaep.org for a list of needed supplies and additional details.

The AAEP Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization created in 1994, serves as the charitable arm of the AAEP and aims to improve the welfare of the horse. Since its inception, the foundation has allocated more than $3.3 million to support its mission.
