The Humane Society of the United States has provided a $5,000 grant to Equine 808 Horse Rescue, an Oahu-based non-profit horse rescue and rehabilitation facility. The grant will help cover costs incurred by the organization when Hurricane Lane caused massive flooding on several of the Hawaiian Islands, including Oahu, where the rescue suffered damage to its holding areas for horses. The Humane Society of the United States thanks Equine 808 for their ongoing efforts to serve the at-risk population of equines on Oahu.

“Equine 808 has been a leader in providing rehabilitation, re-training and adoption services to the at-risk horses of Oahu, and resources to help area horse owners with proper horse care and management through its educational programs” said Keith Dane, Hawaii policy adviser for the Humane Society of the United States. “We are grateful for their efforts and glad to be able to provide this assistance to support their work."

Anyone interested in details and updates, volunteering or making a financial or in-kind donation should contact Equine 808 at 808-590-1210, 808horserescue.org or on Facebook. Donations will help support the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of at-risk equines on Oahu.  

The grant comes from the Humane Society of the United States’ Equine Protection program's emergency fund and its Emergency Animal Relief Fund. The Emergency Animal Relief Fund is a continuing, dedicated fund that enables the organization to help animals impacted by crises such as natural disasters and animal cruelty cases. The fund supports preparedness, rescue, relief, and recovery efforts.
