As a service to the North Carolina equine community, the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine has opened temporary shelter space at the Equine Health Center at Southern Pines for horses displaced by the catastrophic flooding caused by Hurricane Florence.

Paddocks spaces are available for horses in stable health condition. All horses must have an up-to-date rabies vaccine history and a current Coggins test.

Horses with severe wounds or other health issues should not come to the Equine Health Center, but can be seen by the equine emergency service at the CVM in Raleigh.

For more information, call the Equine Health Center at 910-692-8773, office hours 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., or call the NC State Large Animal Hospital at 919-513-6630.
