On a local level, we have concentrated our efforts in directing the development of a temporary neighborhood center to serve as a holding area before and during a hurricane. Register your horse for the Town of Davie’s Temporary Housing for Horses. This program is for Davie residents or for horses boarded in Davie only.
Locate the Animal Registration Form here.
UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, we will be accepting the forms via email, and the fees have been waived at this time. Please email completed forms to Anna Francis, Event Specialist, firstname.lastname@example.org.
No registration will be available at the site or after a storm watch is issued!
You must obtain and complete the following forms prior to bringing your horse to the hurricane turn-out site:
- A completed and signed Animal Registration Form.
- A completed, signed, and notarized General Release Agreement.
- A completed and signed Good Samaritan Act: Immunity from Civil Liability Form.
- Proof of your residency (current utility bill).
- An original copy of your horse’s current negative Coggins report that clearly shows the owner’s address.
- Photo (profile) of your horse with your horse’s name, owner’s name, address, and emergency contact number on the back of the photo.
Please register your horses well in advance. The number of horses accepted is limited.
Stallions will not be permitted. Please do not bring hay or feed for your horses during their stay, water will be provided. Secure horse trailer arrangements for your horses now. If you have a trailer, try to buddy up with other horse owners going to and from the site.
Local Hurricane Turn-Out
You are encouraged to visit the site for yourself before completing your registration form to determine whether you feel it is safer than your current situation.
Once a hurricane warning has been issued, Robbins Preserve Park Lodge site for horses owned by Davie residents or for horses that live in Davie will open. This site will reopen to retrieve your horses when the winds have subsided to a minimum of 40 mph, or when it is deemed safe by emergency personnel.

Identifying your animals well is a crucial part of getting them returned to you in the event that they get loose during the disaster. There are a number of recommended ways of clearly identifying your horse(s):
- Spray paint your telephone number, including area code, on the side of your animal(s) with a contrasting shade of acrylic paint.
- Braid luggage tags into the mane and/or tail of your horse(s) with your name, address, telephone numbers, and possibly with the numbers of out of area contacts. Be sure the information is written in waterproof ink, and tape the tags to waterproof them further.
- Fetlock or mare bands with the appropriate information in waterproof ink.
- Include your Equine’s micro-chip Identification number on your application.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Anna Francis at (954)797-1153 or email@example.com. In order to save a place for your horse, please complete the following forms and mail them back with your payment. We ask that you call with questions now as opposed to when the storm warning is issued.
