In light of drought conditions throughout the province, Alberta Farm Animal Care would like to remind horse breeders and owners to please call the ALERT Line if they, or someone they know, are ever in need of help when it comes to caring for their animals.

The ALERT Line number is 1-800-506-2273 and both producers and consumers are urged to call this number as needed. AFAC is expecting an increase in call volume  due to lack of feed and water, and they want to make sure producers don't feel alone in this issue.
