I don’t usually do this, but an animal shelter near me sustained major damage due to a fire, and they really need a lot of help. I have worked with them before – they are a great organization – and this email from them broke my heart.
Dear Friend of the Felines and Animalkind,Tuesday night at 11 pm there was a fire in the building of Animalkind. Due to the fast response of the fire department and our sprinkler system-no lives were lost. Unfortunately the water damage is tremendous and we needed to evacuate all 120 cats on Wednesday. The Warren Inn generously provided a temporary housing place, but many of our rescues still need a place to go!We have nowhere to go and no funds. We are in desperate NEED of locations, homes, foster homes and donations!! PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!Any amount will help us save our organization. Please spread the word and adopt or foster! WE NEED YOU NOW! Otherwise our existence is uncertain, that means there will be no place for the forgotten and homeless felines.
Here’s an article about the specifics of the fire. If there’s anything anyone can do, any small donation, I’m sure they will really appreciate it.
