GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — With wildfires raging in Colorado, volunteers in Wyoming have offered to make room for displaced horses on their ranches.

The Facebook group “Horse Evacuations East” has garnered support on its event page title “Colorado Fires — Available Temporary Horse Shelter.” It includes offers to board the horses from horse owners living as far afield as California and Virginia.

According to the Associated Press, Dee Stotts, who lives just outside Gillette, says she’s planning to make the drive to Colorado if it meant that she could rescue horses.
Stotts, who has organized donation drives to the South Dakota Pine Ridge Reservation, had tapped others she knew in the area who could make room for horses on their land.
