When natural disasters hit, we think of saving human lives and household pets. In the case flooding and devastation in Louisiana, Dennis MacArthur and Lorna Revord said horses and other farm animals need help too.
They're standing belly deep in water. Even when the water recedes, it's not like they are going to be able to eat on the pasture right away.
They decided to donate 2,400 lbs of hay and other supplies to farm animals in need. With a full trailer and ample supplies ready for the haul, Revord and MacArthur hit the road. They say it will take them 6 hours to get to the affected areas in Louisiana.
Louisiana State Animal Response Team also sprung into action to help these farm animals.
Help support volunteers with equipment, food and shelter for animals and their families impacted. Your financial support is desperately needed.
The LSART is asking for people to donate immediately, as their resources are limited.

The catastrophic flooding stranded tens of thousands of people and pets. The national guard and coast guard saved over a thousand. Volunteers also helped in rescuing pets and pet owners from the high waters. Check out this video of a woman and her dog being saved.
