Help for Horses Left Stranded by the Storms


Hundreds of horses have been put down in Oklahoma following last month's tornadoes.  Surviving horses were left to run free after twisters ripped apart barns and stables as well as downing fences.

The 'Do Your Part' organization is setting up a program to help with equine care. It is called 'Adopt-A-Horse'. Jessica Robinson is the program coordinator. She says they are helping with vet medical expenses as well as caring for displaced horses.

She says they also have volunteers that are doing odd-related jobs. She says some are repairing stables  while other are re-stringing fences. Robinson says the volunteers are also helping clear debris from pastures so that the horses can not get re-injured.

If you would like to help, they have a Facebook page.
