If you have any desire to help the people affected by the terrible fires in Colorado consider donating to the animal shelters that are, in most cases, sheltering evacuees for free. Here’s some information I received in an email. I live in the area of the High Park Fire and it is very intense. The one in Colorado Springs is even worse as far as homes affected.
Please Share this with anyone who may be interested in helping.
From Dr. Agnes Davis, DVM – National disaster management specialist
PLEASE SHARE – *This is critical information for pet owners in the fire
As you probably already know, Colorado is on fire. There are 3 major
fires right now. The shelters and rescues are overwhelmed and need money
& supplies. This is the information we have compiled so far for all area
affected. Please give what you can and if you cannot give then please
share, the animals are counting on you:
