SAFE’s Blanket Bank Helps Over 70 horses in 2018

SAFE was blessed with an abundant number of donated used blankets to keep our herd warm and dry this winter. In fact, we had far more than we needed. So we created the Blanket Bank to offer rain sheets and winter blankets at no charge to horse owners in need of a little help. No qualifying process, no hassle, no questions. We want all of the horses in our region to be warm and dry this season.

Special thanks to Blanket Express Equine Laundry for donating discounted blanket washing and waterproofing for the Blanket Bank blankets. Blanket Express made certain that the blankets we gave away were clean and water resistant. And a big thank you to Olson’s Tack in Bellevue for donating trade-in blankets to our Blanket Bank!

If you have missed this year’s Blanket Bank and are in need of help, please contact Kit Topaz at If we have a blanket available in the size you need, we will certainly give it to you!

The Blanket Bank is held in memory of Dillon, a horse we could not save. A horse we’ll never forget. Read Dillon’s story here. It does not have a happy ending. For more information about SAFE’s Community Outreach Program, please check us out here on the website.
