Can you help horse owners in BC through their current State of Emergency? The flood waters in the lower regions continue to rise as the water from the higher elevations makes its way down. The transportation options are grim and more rain is forecast for the weekend and following week. Many folks still haven’t recovered from the fires during the summer.

HCBC is supervising private helicopter airlifts (supported by the RCMP) in an effort to assist members on the ground. The challenge will be to transport animals with the road and rail systems heavily compromised. As transportation options become available HCBC will assist members in finding ways to move their animals to safer environments.
