As the toll of wildfires in Northern California explodes, news from recent fires in Oregon included relief from an Oregon Hay Bank to stricken equestrians.

The Oregon Hay Bank reportedly received a $5,000 donation for distressed horse owners facing hay shortages as a result of the wildfires in the Grant County area. The $5,000 donation from The Humane Society of the U.S., will be used to help horse owners with immediate needs to feed their animals, and those who may need help during the winter, according to published reports.

The wildfires in Grant County are the largest in Oregon and have destroyed dozens of homes, including properties with horses. Horse owners have lost their hay, and the fires destroyed some hay fields where hay was being grown for the winter.

Since its founding in 2009, the Oregon Hay Bank has provided direct assistance to horse owners facing hardship in almost every county in Oregon. It has provided emergency assistance with other needs, such as vet bills and gelding, and participated in horse health clinics in Oregon to provide free, professional services to horse owners who could not afford those services on their own.

The best way to keep people and animals safe when disaster strikes is to have a good disaster plan.
