I am worried

Post by Ande » Thu, 11 May 2000 04:00:00



You have probably heard about the wildfires in Los Alamos, about 90 miles
NW of Albuquerque.  Actually, it started as a controlled burn by the Park
Service and spread.  Now the town is being evacuated.  My daughter and her
family live in White Rock, well away from the huge fire.  I am
thinking that the evacuees are going to need help with their pets.  I am
leaving tomorrow evening for Tucson but maybe when I return on Sunday I
will look into it and see if the town needs volunteers.  There are lots of
birds up there.  Wild birds, yes - many are toast by now - but seems that
every other house has one or more companion birds. It is not unlike towns
that are flooded.  What happens to the pets?

Good for you, Andee.  Let us know if there is any way we can help- send
supplies or donations or whatever.

Thanks. I just talked to Leslie (daughter) and she said that they have a
house full.  Smith's is the only grocery store up there and it has been
cleaned out. The roads are a mess with people trying to get off the
mountain.  They have a well stocked freezer and pantry and are thinking of
turning their house over to the homeless friends and coming to  my house
while I am gone. Four of them, two dogs, l cat and four birds. They are
being asked to keep their phone calls to a minimum so we did not talk for
long.  

The fire is making its way down the canyons to the plutonium labs. I
presume that the government will step in and take over.  FEMA is already
there. The wind gusts are up to 50 mph.  

I keep saying that there is definitely such a thing as karma.

Andee

THat is what I have been wondering too.  They say the ABQ Humane Society
also needs donations so I think most of the pets are going there.  You live
in NM?  Me too.  I am very sad and worried about all the
wildlife/pets/peoples/houses.  Its just so much more sad when it hits so
close to home.

actually made a sweep of part of the city and rescued dozens of left-behind
pets.  They're all over at the Santa Fe Humane Society I **THINK** and need
donations too.

Poor poor frightened critters.  =(
