Horse Council BC is headquartered in Aldergrove.

More donations needed for Animal Disaster Relief Fund

Donations go to associations, groups, and individuals affected by B.C.’s wildfire disaster

As parts of B.C. continues to burn, the need continues to help animals affected by the wildfires.

Donations are still needed for the Horse Council BC (HCBC) Animal Disaster Relief Fund (ADRF).

Established by Aldergrove-based HCBC, the fund is helping to look after displaced horses and animals during and long after the wildfires in the interior of BC.

“The amount of support the ADRF has received so far has shown us the incredible strength of community,” says Kelly Coughlin, senior program manager and manager of agriculture and industry with HCBC.

“Resources will continue to be needed for the care of displaced horses and animals in the weeks and months to come as many will have lost their farms, pastures and feed supplies.”

Donations from the public will continue to aid the associations, groups, and individuals during and after this unprecedented wildfire disaster.

Help is still needed to assist in HCBC’s efforts to keep supplying those on the ground with needed support throughout this natural disaster.
