Animal activist Alyssa Milano took to Twitter to encourage those in the northern Colorado area to help the Colorado Horse Food Bank deliver hay today to horses and livestock stranded by the massive flood.

The actress tweeted, “Help needed for hay delivery to animals stuck in flood http://bit.ly/17CuyLE #COFlood via @heykim

The food bank is looking for volunteers who own a truck, trailer or flatbed that can be used, as well as people to load and unload the hay.

More than 1,000 people are stranded after a week of relentless rainfall and flooding in Colorado. Five are confirmed dead with an additional 1,253 reported missing.

The flooding happened so fast, ranchers were unable to get their livestock to higher ground. It is impossible to estimate how many animals are stranded or dead at this hour.
