GONZALES - Volunteers are needed at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales where many residents of Ascension Parish have brought their animals along after flooding displaced them from their homes.

The expo center made emergency stalls available for horses that were displaced during the storm, and extra volunteers are needed to haul hay, buckets, feed and other equine necessities.

Staff from The Equine Report magazine have joined the efforts there, but they say more manpower and womanpower will definitely be a big help.

The magazine also says the horse owners require things like food, clothing, toiletries and even shelter, so donations are welcome as the expo center is still being used as a shelter as well.

Detailed updates about the situation and how to volunteer can be found on The Equine Report Facebook page.
