Equine 808 Horse Rescue Receives Grant for Hurricane Lane Efforts
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has provided a $5,000 grant to Equine 808 Horse Rescue, an Oahu, Hawaii-based nonprofit horse rescue and rehabilitation facility.
The grant will help cover costs Equine 808 Horse Rescue incurred when Hurricane Lane caused massive flooding on several of the Hawaiian Islands, including Oahu, where the rescue suffered damage to its holding areas for horses.
“Equine 808 has been a leader in providing rehabilitation, re-training and adoption services to the at-risk horses of Oahu, and resources to help area horse owners with proper horse care and management through its educational programs” said Keith Dane, Hawaii policy adviser for the HSUS. “We are grateful for their efforts and glad to be able to provide this assistance to support their work.”
Anyone interested in details and updates, volunteering or making a financial or in-kind donation should contact Equine 808 Horse Rescue at 808/590-1210, 808horserescue.org, or on Facebook. Donations will help support the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of at-risk equines on Oahu
