2014 Fire Relief
Many families suffered devastating losses of houses, stock, shedding, fencing, hay and pasture in recent grass and bushfires. In the aftermath, you are left with burnt stubble and remnant fencing. You may wonder where to begin. Rejuvenating pastures after fire may help.
Update: 17 February
Project Hope Horse Welfare (PHHW) working with Triple R Equine Welfare (TREW) has a fodder supply and immediate financial assistance for Victorian horse owners who have lost their pasture.
Horse care & temporary paddocks are also available.
Hay donations are being held and distributed from Lowdens in Kilmore, cnr Northern Hwy and Willowmavin Rd. Open from Monday 17 February for a part of each day/week.
Assistance offered to individuals owning horses:
- Hay or emergency feed if paddocks are burnt out
- Immediate financial help if fodder supply is n/a (phone contact)
- Advice and help with first aid or feed management after a fire.
Fodder drop and pick up point: Lowdens in Kilmore, cnr Northern Hwy and Willowmavin Rd
