Protect your Horse and Livestock from Wildfire

When planning for wildfires and establishing defensible for your home, consider and implement those same practices for your large animal enclosures. Visit the resources here to learn about Firewise practices for your animal enclosures.

Evacuating Large Animals

Establish an evacuation plan for your large animals. Explore reciprocal or one-way agreements with regional large animal owners, hobbyists, or organizations. If you have a place to temporarily relocate your animal, evacuate early and lessen the stress of evacuating on you and your animals.
