More than 2,000 horses found sanctuary at the Del Mar County Fairgrounds last week, including those belonging to Professional’s Choice Sports Medicine Products President/ CEO, Dal Scott and Marketing Director, Kelly McGinnis. Over half a million San Diego County residents were under voluntary and mandatory evacuation from their endangered homes. The speed and intensity of the raging fires left little time to collect supplies. With so many people and horses in need, Professional’s Choice was compelled to lend a helping hand. The donation of Professional’s Choice halters, lead ropes, hay bags, gloves, hats, back supports and knee supports were well received by both volunteers and evacuees residing at the Del Mar County Fairgrounds and the makeshift Weld Horse Camp in El Cajon.
Fortunately there are no major fatalities to report in regards to the homes and lives of the Professional’s Choice team. Officials are hoping for 100% containment in the very near future.
