I just wanted to share with you an update. We are located in Orange County CA which was ravaged by the Silverado Fires consuming 14,000 acres and evacuated 90,000 residents. All of the evacuees are their pets are going back home today.

The good news is no animal shelters were evacuated and no rescuers were affected by the blaze. Our local shelter, Irvine Animal Care Center took in pets of the residents who couldn’t care for them.

They’re an incredible group of women and men who came together to care for these animals so their families could focus on staying safe. All of these animals are going back home to their families.

Thank you to everyone who supported Orange County during this time. Your prayers and love were felt by many! It was amazing seeing communities come together quickly to support us all.

We are starting a program for resident’s whoes pet’s got loose during the evacuation. If you are one of those residents please contact us and we can cross post to find them for you. We have many people who can help search. We are here to help!

There are two firefighters still struggling to stay alive after being critically burned protecting us. Prayers to their families and strength to these two brave heroes.
