This afternoon, 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 transported them to Humphrey Giacopuzzi & Associates Equine Hospital for immediate care.
The horses' injuries and burns were treated at the hospital and 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. Thank you to everyone involved in getting these two horses successfully rescued and to safety.
a very special thank you to Humphrey Giacopuzzi & Associates Equine Hospital and to 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. #hsvc #ojai #ventura #venturacounty #hillfire #woolseyfire #malibu #fire #animalrescue #humanesociety #socal #805 #LA #LAcounty #losangeles #805strong #donate #horse #horsesofinstagram #malibustrong #animalshelter
