California Fires - Supplies For Dog Owners Affected by the Fires

In the face of advancing flames, and under urgent evacuation orders,
people reach instinctively for their beloved pets, but in the rush to leave,
often forget to take the food and other provisions necessary for their care. In
order to help fill this need, Dennis Sprung, President of the American Kennel
Club, has coordinated with Susan Sholar, President of the California Federation
of Dog Clubs, to send an immediate donation of food, collars and leashes,
and crates to help those dog owners affected by the devastating fires in
southern California. CFODC members, and anyone else needing assistance in providing for their pets̢۪security and well-being as a result of these fires, should call the California School of Dog Grooming at 1-800-949-3746, and ask for Susan.
The school, located in San Diego, is the designated site for distribution of the
donated supplies, as well as a growing list of volunteers with offers to foster
care, or with available kennels, dog runs, RV parking spaces, spare bedrooms, sofa
beds, and the like.

The AKC and CFODC, in order to maximize their opportunity to help, ask
that you cross post this message wherever possible.

Thank you.
