Welcome to the
Historic Flood Hits HPL
|The recent floods have been devastating for many Coloradans and it is with heartfelt sincerity that we hope you and your family are safe, and with as little hardship as possible under these terrible circumstances.In difficult times, it is important for us all to help each other. Though we are dealing with damage and disruptions at HPL, we do not mean to be disrespectful of the fact that you may be in need of help for your own situation.That being said, unfortunately, we feel it is necessary to make an unusual appeal for help and funds. We are reaching out for any help that people can contribute to our clean-up, damage repair, and horse care efforts.Though we are fortunate that none of our animals were injured, we are still coping with some emotional distress and will be watching for health repercussions such as thrush, soft feet, and fungus.Our property however, has damage. We lost some hay and grain. Footing in pens and walkways is gone. Mud and water oozed into our beautiful, historic ranch house.Though insurance and the City of Arvada have some responsibility for the property, there are many things that are HPL responsibilities. We have already exceeded $1,000.00 in expenses and we anticipate thousands more in the very near future.||On the positive side, we are proud of, and grateful for, our dedicated volunteers. They are working hard with the horses, cleaning and doing repairs and restructuring water flow at the ranch.As for the horses, the youngsters were curious about the strange rivers of water rushing through the pens and pastures, but for many of our older horses, this was quite stressful.Even though we try to budget for emergencies, we could have never foreseen a situation of this magnitude that has had such a huge impact on our community.Please mail checks to the P.O. Box 741089, Arvada, CO. 80006 or click HERE to donate via Pay Pal. Earmark your donation with the word “Flood”. We are extremely appreciative for your contributions. We couldn’t help the horses without your generosity.Sincerely,Annie Oden
President of The Horse Protection League

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to help us get the property back in good condition for the horses after the flood. We are still working on the damage, but with the donations it’s allowing HPL not to take away from the horses funds. Thank you for your generous support!
