Help California Fire Victims!

Backcountry Horsemen of California has put together a
wildfire aid fund. Your donation will help fund feed and
supplies to assist in the training of non-horse people who
will be providing the care of all the displaced equines.

Several BCHC units have already contributed.
Add your personal donation today!

We would like to thank John Beck from the Hay Yard in Red Bluff
(14300 Molluc Drive Red Bluff CA 96080) for helping us to deliver a
truck and trailer load of hay to the rescue center at the Fair Ground in Gridley.
John gave us a real assist by giving us a big discount and arranging a
squeeze in Gridley to unload the hay at no cost.

So far we have received over $9000.00 in donations.
Right now the Butte County Animal Control has shut down the rescue site
in Gridley, but as soon as things get figured out we hope to send more supplies.
From what we are hearing here are a lot of animals still inside the black zone
that are safe, food and water are being transported to them daily.

Donate through PayPal below.
100% of ALL funds gathered for this fundraiser
will used to support displaced livestock.
