Do you have an evacuation plan for your horses, livestock, and other large animals?
Preparing in advance is the best way to ensure safe transport and sheltering of large animals displaced by disaster. We'll happily conduct a site visit to your barn or facility and assist you with forming an evacuation plan. You'll be provided with stall cards for accurate identification of animals and advice on how to minimize risk of harm to humans, animals and property.
