On behalf of our friends out West…
Clancy and Shayna here.
This season’s wildfires are some of the worst ever seen. In addition to the many homes that have been lost to the spreading flames, countless animals have been injured and displaced. To date, the ASPCA has rescued and sheltered more than 2500 animals in Northern California alone. When a call goes out, an animal disaster response team assists local agencies in the rescue and emergency sheltering of dogs, cats, birds and livestock. Just this past Monday, police rushed in to rescue 60 dogs and cats from a shelter in Vacaville, CA, that was directly in the path of the rapidly moving Nelson Fire. Thankfully, everyone made it out in time, smoky, but safe. The rescued animals are currently in foster care.
Animals rescued from the wildfires are examined and treated by veterinarians. This life-saving work is made possible by the donations of caring people. And because these scared and injured animals can’t ask for your help, we’re doing it for them.
If you can, please consider making a donation to the ASPCA’s disaster relief efforts. Call 800-628-0028 to give or donate safely online at: https://secure.aspca.org/donate/2018-web-ca-wf-bre1-T1-P1
Paul Oxton, founder of the Wild Heart Wildlife Foundation wrote, “A simple act of kindness and compassion towards a single animal may not mean anything to all creatures, but will mean everything to one.”
And on behalf of all of the animals helped by your generosity, please accept our heartfelt thanks for your kindness!
