Ocotillo Fire in Cave Creek May 30, 2020

It was so exhilarating to see the outpouring of so much compassion.

TNT Horse Haven/TNT Ranch is proud to have participated in the rescue efforts in the Ocotillo fire in Cave Creek.

The attached pictures show us ready and waiting to go… shows us partially loaded with horses needing to be relocated to safety. We were able to take 7 horses to a rescue 20 minutes away. I have some pretty cool video that I’m having trouble posting… Sorry for that! 1 video taken by a trailer that was behind us where you’ll see the flame retardant being dropped… It was right next to us, another video showing the helicopter dropping water …. The whole time we were there the smoke was billowing from the out of control fire and one of the videos shows us right behind the fire dept leading a convoy of trailers to a horse rescue with 20 plus horses needing to be brought to safety. At one point the fire dept came to us and said we have less than 10 minutes to be on our way before the smoke would be overwhelming us.

The fire and rescue heroes were amazing… the outpouring of compassion from the Cave Creek community was unbelievable. It was such a privilege and a pleasure to be involved with so many gracious and inspirational people.

For those of you that I had the pleasure of meeting, please reach out to me so that we can connect for future times like this as well as more pleasurable contact.

I encourage everyone to support your favorite animal rescue and be cognizant that horses cannot evacuate themselves. If we don’t watch out for the animals, then who will?

Horse Haven is an animal rescue located on 27-acres in North Scottsdale. We are available with a large stock trailer and facilities to accommodate temporary housing for a large number of horses, donkeys and goats.
