In response to the threat of multiple wildfires burning throughout the province, Alberta has declared a provincial state of emergency to ensure the safety, health, and welfare of Albertans. Emergency responders are working around the clock to keep people safe and reduce the threat to homes and infrastructure.
The Government of Alberta Emergency Management Agency has asked AEF to create an 'Emergency Help' directory connecting equine owners in need with those who have the means to help.
If you have the means and are interested in helping equines in need, please complete this form.
*Please note we will not be coordinating the transport of feed or horses, so it will be directly between those who need help and those who offered help to coordinate any interaction.
If you are in need of equine assistance, please consult this directory.
The Emergency Help Directory was created for equines in need as a neutral venue for horse owners and providers of horse-related services to find, communicate with, and interact with each other. The Alberta Equestrian Federation "AEF" does not screen horse owners nor service providers in the emergency directory. Service providers are not under the direction or control of AEF and have the sole discretion on how to provide services requested by the horse owners. All transactions conducted using the emergency directory are between the horse owners and service providers. Horse owners and service providers are solely responsible for making decisions that are in the best interests of themselves and their horses and should exercise caution and their independent judgment before engaging a service provider or providing services. AEF makes no representations or warranties about the quality of services provided by the service providers or about the horse owners' interactions and dealings and AEF expressly disclaims liability for any actions or omissions, claims, injuries, loss, harm and/or damages arising from and/or in any way related to the interactions or dealings between horse owners and service providers.
