Horse Facilities Available For Disaster Evacuees

15 posts in this topic

I thought it might be very helpful to have a permanent list on HC of people that would be willing to take in evacuees during disasters. It seems there have been so many that have had to evacuate recently for huricanes, fires, etc. I know there are lots of members that would like to help their fellow board buddies in their time of need.

So, if you would be willing to help in the future, just fill in the following form. I'll put my info in to start.

Location: Mocksville, NC. Located near Statesville, Charlotte and Winston-Salem.

Horse Facilities Available: A four acre pasture with trees for shelter. Fenced with field fence with a hot rope on top. Water available. A stall is possible depending on my current situation.

Maximum Number of Horses: Probably 4 horses, though if they are used to being out together, we might be able to put 5 or 6 in the pasture.

Human Facilities: We have a single wide trailer available right next to the pasture. It is mostly used for storage, but does have heat/air, a working bathroom, fridge, etc. and a bed.

Contact: PM or email Erin at erinlide@windstream.net

Notes: Horses must be up to date on vaccinations and have negative coggins papers.

Since I am so close to Clemson and their 400 stalls and trailer hook-ups I think people would be better served staying there where the facilities are in place to handle all those horses. However, if push comes to shove I could put up a few.

That makes sense QH. But there are a lot of people that might not have been aware that Clemson had facilities available (like me), so it's very helpful to have it here!

Thank you Spunker's!

I think this is a wonderful idea and very kind of all of you who offer up their places to evacuees.

I am a Hurricane Katrina evacuee, Hurricane Rita, and Hurricane Gustav....Gustav was tough b/c we had to go in a totally different direction and had to really make alot of accomodations to get our animal/ horses in a safe place.

I am glad ya'll are thinking of disasters all over the US and places to go.

So far...I think we are out of the woods for Hurricanes this year...the season is coming to a close.

But....other places in the US always have their own set of disaters to worry about.

THANKS! [Not Worthy]

I used to be a volunteer firefighter, so I was always in contact with our local Office of Emergency Management. If you are in Louisiana and get evacuated, he do have our state fairgrounds available. It's a big drive, but there are several stalls for horses cattle and all kinds of livestock and arena. They did use the fairgrounds to house people during Katrina. I am not sure if they would use these, but there are fairgrounds in Pine Bluff, AR, which is a little closer to LA, also has several stalls. 4 State's Fairgrounds in Texarkana has 100 stalls, same as Pine Bluff. I don't know if they would open up or not. The Saline County Fairgrounds in Benton, AR has some stalls, maybe 40 at the max. Same as above. Not sure if it would open up. That is all I know of south of Little Rock that might open up for disaster relief.

Fema's website used to have a list and was a place you can register yourself to house animals during disaster's. I am not sure if they still have it on their website or not.

This is a great idea. That being said, I think every farm owner shoud be in contact with several local barns incase of an emergency.
