With the news and aftermath of the grass fires that hit our local communities last week, our hearts are heavy, and our thoughts go out to all who have been personally affected. It is our mission now to work with the people of our community to provide aid and assistance to the people and pets who have been impacted by the fires. Please keep an eye out for any and all ways that we and the rest of the communities around us can support those in need. Here are some of the ways we’ve found for you to help:
The Lexie Fund will be contacting and assisting veterinary clinics and pets impacted from the fire. Any donations made to the Lexie Fund until January 31st will be directly helping those impacted from the fire. Visit https://gofund.me/c590b81b to make a donation.
Evolution Veterinary Specialists is providing boarding for displaced pets. Call prior to make arrangements. https://evolutionvet.com/
