FIRE NEWS!!

Redwood Valley Fire Relief Depot for Equine and large animal(pets) owners has given away most all of its supplies and we now give the premises back to it's very generous owner: Mary Synder.

The plan now is that SAFER will continue to help Mendocino with Fire recovery using vouchers to Rainbow Ag and Tractor Supply. These businesses have hay and grain and equipment that will be needed as folks continue to return to their properties and start building. All misc. items left over, like blankets and halters can be had from the "Horse Room" at the Potter Valley Fire Relief Center - thank you Melody Osburn !

SAFER is reaching out to those who have not received hay and supplies yet - we know there are many who could use these supplies we have not supplied. Please send inquiries to info@saferhorse.com. No information is shared with anyone under any circumstances. Be well and be strong Mendocino! Please contact us by sending a message to info@saferhorse.com.

Sonoma and Napa horse people can get supplies at the Petaluma Supply Depot run by the Sonoma Farm Bureau - call 707-544-5575 or email Emily@sonomafb.org for assistance. Excellent that they are doing this!!

ALL of the SAFER horses are fine! Bowie got evacuated - and now is ADOPTED!! Thank you Cindy Messick! Raven got evacuated and is now ADOPTED!!- thank you Sarah O'Rourke!

And we welcome some old friends back into the program as their wonderful owner of 10 years has been affected by the fire in Bennett Valley. These are the very first horses SAFER ever rescued...and here they are!!

The little family - Mom Ellie, Dad Mojo, and Daughter Mocha. They will go BACK to their owner- who has given them a wonderful life and the best of care. Until then - they are in our care. Look for the story of SEVEN mini dentals...Here!

Sally and Apache were two very lonely horses last week. Turns out SAFER is an online dating service for Equines! See their story HERE!
