I keep finding more and more information on how people can help the victims of the wildfires. Some of the updates I've posted in a previous blog entry about the tragedy, and now I'm going to start another one so people can find it more easily.
EDIT: Found this on Twitter. 100% of the proceeds of this tee-shirt will go to help victims.
My friend Lauren has her own dog-walking business and is currently looking for people to help donate or take in evacuated pets. Here's the info she posted to her business's Facebook page:
OK it's time for a call to arms Pooch People. Over 30,000 people have
been evacuated due to the Waldo Canyon fire alone. Many of these people
have pets. PLEASE contact Larimer County Humane Society, Boulder Valley
Humane Society or Pike's Peak Humane Society and offer to foster a dog
or cat. If you want to help but you're not sure how, call Dumb Friends
League or check their websites for more info.
We are offering DISCOUNTED walks/visits to anyone who has fosters in the house. Please consider opening your homes.
Boulder Valley: 303-442-4030
Larimer County: 970-226-3647
Pike's Peak: 719-473-1741 extra 8723
Dumb Friends League: 303-751-5772
We will also be accepting donations of food (both human and animal) and
sundries for those in the shelters. Just leave it in your house with a
note that says donate.
Please share/retweet etc. The discounts
are good for new clients as well. Hug your pets, hug your family and
then do something to help.
