We are a nonprofit organization focused on helping livestock owners during their time of need. With the help of our tireless members, we provide emergency evacuation for livestock owners in need during disasters. Most recently, our Strike Team was dispatched by El Dorado Animal Services to lead evacuations during the Caldor Fire and aided in evacuations at the SCU Lightning Complex Fires in Northern California. Following disasters, we provide much needed feed and supplies for affected livestock and their owners.
HYH members receive training throughout the year to prepare them for emergency evacuations behind fire lines. The Strike Team is comprised of not just equestrians, but of firefighters, paramedics, police officers, vet techs, animal rescuers, nurses, ranchers, and more, to ensure the maximum amount of beneficial knowledge and experience are in our team.
HYH is working on expanding our team to include "Members At Large," to aide with coordinating and running operations outside of evacuations. This will include Donation Coordination, Shelter Intake and Management, Rescue Follow-up, Community Outreach, and more. Please let us know if you are interested in joining our team!
