Beat the Heat Summer Fun Day at Hooved Animal Humane Society

July 23, 2022 - 10:00 am to 2:00 pm

Beat the Heat Summer Fun Day at Hooved Animal Humane Society

Join us on Saturday, July 23, 2022 from 10 am to 2 pm for our Beat the Heat Summer Fun Day!

Summer can be hard on horses and other animals. Hot temps, humidity, and pesky flies can all add up to misery for horses and hooved animals who do not have access to shade, cool water, and fly spray and/or masks and boots. Hypersensitivity to bug bites, cracked hooves, and dehydration colic are only a few of the concerns horse and other animal owners face.

Our Summer Fun Day is a fundraiser for us to purchase and install safe, closed-motor, ag-rated barn fans for our horses, pigs, and goats to help keep them cool during the summer heat.

Our two-legged friends deserve a cool break as well! We will have a dunk tank and water balloons to cool off with. Plenty of games and activities will be set up outside and inside, and our Tack Shop will be open as well. We will have farm tours at the top of every hour to meet the animals, and you can feed our piggies their daily cool fruit and veggie snack for a $5 donation.

Rumor has it we have a ringer planning to attend who promises to dunk everyone at least once!   3 balls for $5
