This was brought to my attention by an EFA member and I thought I’d pass it along. I know most of you are not in the area but if tell others eventually this info would get to the people who can help.

Info below as copied from their website:


In the early morning of May 20, a major fire destroyed a large section of our shelter. We lost our entire cat sheltering area as well as laundry facilities and offices. We are currently without water, electricity and phone service.

We lost 15 of our beautiful cats that were ready for adoption but all the dogs survived and are being cared for in our kennels and at a veterinary emergency service.

Our most immediate needs are:

-Monetary donations. Any amount you can donate will make a difference. You can help us three ways.

– Online, press any DONATE button on the website

-By phone at (510) 845-7735. Our phone system is being switched to

Fliqz to help you donate.
