With Hurricane Harvey about to make landfall, Special CHEERS made  the call to evacuate ahead of it. It was a tough decision to leave our beloved farm and all our incredible therapy equipment behind, but we needed to get all of our treasured animals to higher ground.

Mrs. Fritzi and her incredible staff and family were able to evacuate ALL of their rescue animals - including 14 horses, 5 dogs, 2 goats, 1 rabbit, 4 chickens, 1 rooster and 1 pig. The smaller animals were taken to individual's homes and the larger animals are graciously being housed at the Great Southwest Equestrian Center. We cannot thank everyone enough for their incredible efforts in helping us get all of the animals out safely as we wait to see how long it takes for the anticipated flood waters to recede.

All of the therapy equipment was not able to be removed before the storm. So now we wait...
