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.
The horses' injuries and burns were treated at the hospital and the horses were released to the HSVC this afternoon. Upon arrival, they unloaded out of the trailer with ease and enjoyed their first meal at the shelter where they will stay in our care as long as necessary.
A very special thank you to Humphrey Giacopuzzi & Associates Equine Hospital, Allie Tashnek DVM, Chris Weber, and Chloe Willems for their commitment and care to animals in need and to all our supporters for believing in us and making rescues like these possible.
