IN FIRE'S PATH
Yesterday we "talked" about the horses in the California fires.
Some people fleeing in a hurry have turned horses loose and I had a report from a fire fighter friend that some pet horses are banding together and running after fire engines, hoping humans will save them.
Of course the fire fighters can't load horses onto the fire engine. They have no way to help the horses, but some of you can!
If you are in southern California, horse rescuers can use your HANDS ON help!
Here is one plea: We need loving people to come to Animal Acres and help feed and water our rescued rescues. We need food! We need bedding! We need everything you can think of that goes with farm animals to make them comfortable, calm, and feeling safe. So LOVE is a good thing to bring along,
PLEASE help by:
1. Coming to Animal Acres to help care for evacuated animals here. We need caregivers from 9 am. to 3 p.m. daily. No appointment is necessary. Directions may be found at animalacres.org
2. Volunteering to help set up an emergency evacuation area for the Animal Acres animals. We need volunteers to help put up fencing and other jobs. The more volunteers who can pitch-in, the sooner we can have a site ready for evacuation needs. Volunteers are needed EVERY DAY from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please call (661-269-5404) if you can join us, and let us know what day(s) you'll be joining us.
3. Donating for evacuation needs. We URGENTLY need funding for temporary housing sheds, evacuation site fencing and corrals, water troughs & water hoses - and we need to purchase one additional transport trailer to be able to evacuate all of the animals immediately. Your donation, in any amount, will means so much.
On behalf of ALL of us at Animal Acres, and the animals who need our assistance at this difficult time, THANK YOU.
