Help California Wildfire Victims

An estimated 50,000 people have evacuated their homes to escape the latest fires raging in California. California has had an unusually active fire season to date, and the worst part of fire season is still ahead. 12,000 firefighters have been battling 17 significant fires just as of July 29*. The destruction and threat to life and livelihoods is huge and sobering. The Carr Fire (largest of these fires) has burned more than 95,000 acres, claiming six lives and destroying 966 structures, including 723 homes. Another 5,000 structures are still in danger from this fire alone, and the loss to wildlife is not known.

People, pets, and wildlife need your support now!
