I’ve just received the following note from a friend:
Meanwhile from our yard… the Soberanes fire is about 26 minutes away, the air quality is not super great, and there has been a boil advisory for some of the homes closer to the fire. Almost 20,000 acres have burned and the fire is only 10% contained. 20 homes and 2 outbuildings are destroyed. Evacuation orders and warnings have been issued for many towns.
If anyone feels called to donate anything, the Monterey County SPCA needs small bags of dog and cat food and litter for all the displaced pets, or a monetary donation of any amount is welcome. The firefighters are being taken care of and have been asked to turn away donations.
Please help the SPCA if you can. It sounds as if this fire is pretty horrific. There’s a “Donate” button on the home pageof their website.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
