WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW. PLEASE.
Fleet of Angels has been called "the most responsive national go-to organization in the country" for helping horse owners and small rescues when they need urgent assistance after being devastated by a natural disaster or other major emergency.
We urgently need your help with these ongoing crises. Never before in our history have we been asked to help so many horse owners and small rescues overcome challenges that threaten the wellbeing of equines in their care. Horses suffer if we aren't able to step up, and we know that you join us in our goal of never having to turn our backs on equines in crisis due to a lack of funds. Here's what we're being asked to help with now:
America's longest, harshest drought in recent history destroyed many hay crops during the last harvest season, driving the price of horse hay up to record levels that make it unaffordable for struggling families. Many owners are trying hard to keep their horses from suffering from hunger when grazing is not an option. Our goal is to provide temporary help, keeping those vulnerable horses fed and safe in their homes while their caregivers find long term solutions to this problem. Preventing the horses from possibly falling into dangerous or deadly hands is critical. YOU make it possible for us to help thousands of equines every year, providing feed, emergency care, and even safe placement in new homes when necessary. Please help us provide life-saving emergency horse hay, medical care, and other life-saving supplies and services.
The United States has more tornadoes than any other country in the world. In fact, over 70% of Earth's tornado events occur in America. There have been more tornadoes in our midwestern and gulf states in the past few months than in any time in recorded history. Flooding in western states have also been record-setting, with hundreds of thousands of acres of land saturated beyond use and many buildings and hay supplies destroyed or damaged. Wildfires in the southwest have taken major tolls on many. Farms have been destroyed or severely damage. Horses have been severely injured. Fleet of Angels is able to contribute in meaningful ways toward the efforts to have horses seen by vets, rebuild fences, and provide essential items needed to keep horses contained, safe, fed, and cared for while owners find long term solutions to the challenges prevents by these storms.
Fleet of Angels is frequently contacted about providing emergency assistance in helping horses find new homes after their owners passed away, became disabled, or lost their source of income due to an unavoidable situation. These crises are never the horses' fault, and we strive to mitigate suffering for the equine victims of these events by providing or helping arrange for emergency feed, care, placement in safe havens, and transportation to those new homes.
Thousands of horse owners in Ukraine are unable to safely evacuate that war-torn country due to the danger of transporting through enemy lines and vulnerable regions. Fleet of Angels has provided funds for emergency hay and medical supplies for over 100 horses in Ukraine, but many more urgently need our help. We are now in Phase 5 of this effort, and have created a designated fund specifically for this mission. Only fund designated for that purpose may be used to assist equines in Ukraine. To contribute specifically to that program, please donate here: www.gofundme.com/f/the-fund-for-ukraine-horses

Thank you so much!!!!!
I can't tell you how much this means to the horses!!!!!
With everything going on, everyone's health being at risk, feed hoarding, I am so worried about the horses loosing funding and being forced to make impossible decisions. This is an unbelievable relief! I can never thank you enough for setting this up and the wonderful people that donated to help us give these deserving horses the love and care they need! I am overwhelmed with appreciation and gratitude!" -Phyllis V.
"I'm so grateful to your program & donors. Thank you isn't enough to express my reaction to your kindness and generosity. Your foresight is to be commended too because I never imagined it was possible to be in this situation. When I can, it may be 2 years or 5 I'm determined to start my own fund for-profit lesson, boarding and training stables who rely on public income to survive. This is a motivation to pay it forward."
"Thank you SO much!!!!!! I cannot express how grateful I am for your help!!"

"THANK YOU IS NOT ENOUGH! AS I READ THIS MY EYES FILLED WITH TEARS. I HAVE WALKED OUTSIDE DAILY WONDERING WHO I COULD PART WITH OR WHAT COULD I DO. I HAVE FALLEN TO MY KNEES PRAYING FOR ANYTHING. I WISH I COULD HUG EVERYONE'S' NECKS AND SHAKES EACH AND EVERYONE'S' HANDS.
I AM BEYOND BLESSED!"

"Thank you so very much !
All the horses and I are so very grateful! Blessing to you and your staff. Stay safe, stay well!" -Wendy M.
"This has been such a relief to get the load of hay. I've been having a rough time with finances since my accident in July and now with this COVID-19 I'm not really able to work as social distancing has made it so students can not come out. I take on owner relinquish rescue horses and the only way that I'm able to fund it is through my lessons.
Thank you so much for helping me
to continue to care for my animals."
"We are extremely grateful for the help we received from Fleet of Angels.
This is a trying time for everyone. Fleet of Angels has been very responsive during this crisis and you deserve the highest praises for the great work you do, and the efficiency with which you are operating during this crisis. It makes a big difference to horse owners who are keeping the care of their beloved animals as top priority while at the same time having no income. Thank you so much for the great work. "
"I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for the help that you have given me to get hay for my horses and mules. Due to Covid 19 our business has come to a complete stand still leaving us with no income. Thank you to all of the donors and organizations that have made this possible to help people like myself to feed our equine animals during a terrible time like this that our whole world is going through. Our animals mean the world to us and i was at a complete loss as to how i was going to be able to continue to care for them and this gift has given us the much needed time to get all of this figured out. We are so grateful and humbled by this gift and I believe that Fleet of Angels is truly a answered prayer."
