(HELP ANIMALS/DISASTER RELIEF) As wildfires continue to blaze throughout opposite ends of California, first responders are working around-the-clock to help save those in need.
More than 300,000 people have been forced to evacuate their homes since the fires began, with many unable to take their beloved pets with them. Horses and other animals are also in danger as flames continue to spread and new fires flare up.
In Northern California, the Camp Fire has become the state’s deadliest wildfire, killing at least 42 people and displacing more than 52,000 residents. By Monday night, the fire was only 30 percent contained, scorching more than 117,000 acres and destroying over 7,000 structures.
The Woolsey Fire in Los Angeles and Ventura counties have killed two and burned at least 93,000 acres, threatening 57,000 structures. The fire was 35 percent contained as it entered its sixth day, destroying over 400 structures thus far.
According to the Center for International Disaster Information, sending money is almost always the most efficient way to help in a disaster.
So far, Global Animal Foundation–a 501(c)(3) that funds emergency animal rescue worldwide–has raised over $2,500 to help the hundreds of pets, horses, and wildlife displaced by the fires as committed animal rescue organizations work to keep animals safe and healthy.
Global Animal Foundation is collecting donations to help rescue and care for animals affected by the devastating California wildfires.
