These barns are willing to take in horses displaced during Hurricane Harvey.
However, when it comes to overnight accommodations, it’s much easier to house a dog or a cat for a few days than it is a horse. That’s why someone started a Google Doc aimed at collecting the names and contact information of barn owners willing and able to house horses in need of help.
The document, titled, “List of available stalls for Harvey’s evacuees.” was six pages long as of August 30. It lists the name of the facility, the name of its owner, the number of available stalls and a contact phone number.
Since Google Docs can be set to “public,” the document can be edited by anyone. It provides a quick and easy way for barn owners to let equestrians in need know that they are willing and able to help.
Horse people have a reputation for being big-hearted, and are known for stepping up to help each other in times of need. The devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey is a perfect example of that willing spirit; the document continues to be shared throughout equestrian circles and continues to grow.
And here is a list of resources that will directly help horses in need during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey: How to Help Horses in Hurricane Harvey.
