Two Horses Rescued Fires Find Refuge at the HSVC

On November 13th, the Humane Society of Ventura County Animal Emergency Rescue team picked up the two horses who had been rescued off a burnt down property from Humphrey Giacopuzzi & Associates Equine Hospital and transported them back to the shelter. The two horses had originally been escorted out of a burned down home in Malibu by HSVC Equine Specialist Christie Tracy, and HSVC Animal Rescue Emergency Volunteer Bennie Scorsur. The horses were transported down to Zuma beach where they were transferred to animal rescue workers, Allie Tashnek DVM, Chris Weber, and Chloe Willems, who took them to Humphrey Giacopuzzi & Associates Equine Hospital for immediate care.

Yesterday the Humane Society of Ventura County Animal Emergency Rescue Team went back out into the field to try to track down two horses who had been spotted out in Trancas Canyon in Malibu earlier this morning. Another horse from the same property had been rescued a few days ago by the Humane Society and staff hiked back nearly 2 miles into the canyon searching for the other two horses to no avail. With heavy hearts, staff turned around and hiked back out of the canyon to let the owner know that his horses could not be found.

Sandra Bullock and her family have reached out to other nonprofit organizations both during this incident and in the past. However, this time she wanted to contribute to those on the frontline rescuing animals in peril and hope others will choose to do the same.
