Purina Mills donates 20 tons of feedPurina Loga

Purina Horse Feed on Facebook

The Valley Fire in southern Lake County, California, has left many horses displaced and in need of care and shelter. Thanks to the team at Rainbow Agricultural Services for helping us donate 20 tons of feed to help horses at Safer Sonoma Action For Equine Rescue. These natural disasters remind us that, as community members, we’re all here to support each other. If you’d like to make a donation to help horses and their owners affected by severe weather, visit the AAEP Foundation at Best wishes to those still fighting the Valley Fire.


Horses graze on donated hay Now that the Valley Fire has been contained and the evacuation orders lifted, the work of rebuilding begins. The scope of that project is rather staggering; for those whose homes were destroyed the list of needs just grows. Needed donations are flowing in from many sources and there will be a need for months to come. SAFER (Sonoma Action for Equine Rescue), which is taking donations for horses and livestock needs, has arranged a large covered, secure area in which to store hay and feed through the winter. Monetary donations to SAFER can be made at either Rainbow Ag store. The Lake County Horse Council has created a Disaster Relief Fund to help with other needs such as fencing materials, water troughs and shelters. Middletown Animal Hospital is collecting donations to provide for veterinary care, and shares their plans for the long-term care of animals from the Valley Fire. Many of Rainbow's vendors have stepped up with generous donations, including Purina and Elk Grove Milling sending feed, and Vetericyn sending veterinary supplies, VSI sending pallets of supplies and equipment, and Central Pet also sending a pallet of goods. For those whose outbuildings, barns and fencing was destroyed, foster homes are needed until the owners can safely bring their animals home. Contact SAFER if you are able to foster. There has been an unprecedented outpouring of help from all over the country, but it will be a long process to heal and rebuild. Rainbow Ag will be there for the long haul, helping however we can.

If you are missing an animal, or have found one, there are many social media pages set up to help reunite lost pets, horses and livestock with their families. For a complete listing of all the sites, check out this Resource List.

Middletown Animal Hospital has been "ground central" for pets, horses and livestock injured or homeless from the Valley Fire. Keep up with all that is going on by visiting their Facebook Page.

The fire has reached 97% containment, now that the smoke has begun to clear the real work of rebuilding our community begins. When the fire first erupted we had to just focus on each animal that came through our doors. Now we are seeing fewer new patients with burns and fire related injuries, but more pets whose families have been impacted by the fire by loss of homes. Animals are also still coming in who have been found after 2 weeks and we are treating those animals as well.

So the subject now turns to where we go from here in terms of care and there has been some confusion about how that care works. Here is how we are providing patient care for the next couple months:

  • Any animal that comes in with any fire related injury will be treated free of cost.
  • Any animal that comes in with any illness or injury that is not a result of the fire BUT whose family has been impacted by the fire through loss of home will be treated free of cost. Please let our office staff know that you have lost your home in the fire so they can waive the cost in our billing system.
  • All other patients will be seen just as they were before and we have resumed our regular operations for our patients as of this week. Our phone lines were finally restored so to make an appointment or be seen for regular non-fire related visits just give a call during regular business hours.

The fundraising campaign helps us provide these services free of cost to the animals injured in the fire and for the pet and livestock owners who have been impacted by the fire through loss of their homes. It is our desire to keep providing quality care to our patients and in order to do so we must pay our staff, keep up with our overhead expenses as well as purchase medications, medical supplies and material costs associated with medical procedures and treatments.

We hope this explains how the longer term operations at Middletown Animal Hospital will work in the upcoming weeks and months as we all recover and rebuild our community. Thank you all very much for your support. We look forward to continuing to serve you and your pets.

Thank you all for your ongoing support. There is currently a GoFundMe account set up to help offset some of the expenses of the continued care for animals impacted by the Valley Fire. We appreciate your support. h24mk7qk
