***MILO FOUNDATION SANCTUARY, A 283 ACRE ANIMAL SANCTUARY IN THE HEART OF MENDOCINO COUNTY, THREATENED BY FIRE. MARIN, NORTH BAY, SONOMA VOLUNTEERS NEEDED IN STANDBY FOR POSSIBLE EVACUATION & CARE OF 200 COMPANION ANIMALS***

STATUS: STANDBY
AS OF: 6/28/08 – 9:45PM PST

IF YOU CAN HELP PLEASE CONTACT:

Our sanctuary — east of Willits in Mendocino County has a wildfire approaching that is only 5% contained. We have ~200 animals there.

The area shelters and rescue sites are already filling due to the amount of displaced livestock and pets — so we need to appeal to our friends, volunteers and foster homes in the Bay Area to help! I believe we have housing opportunities for our dogs in Sonoma and surrounding areas and can house our cats or many of them at our facility in Marin — though we will need volunteers to help care for the dogs — and the cats!

Transport: If you have a big vehicle and can handle animals, we need you!

Animal Care: We have several locations where animals can go in Santa Rosa and San Rafael — we’ll need volunteers to assist with care and feeding.

Foster Care: We are looking for foster homes for the animals.

If you can help, please contact Lynne at lat [at] milofoundation.org

Let’s hope it doesn’t come to this. I will have an update at 8PM. We will need a few good folks with large vehicles to drive if possible — we do have offers from some organizations with vans, a winery with a 16′ animal trailer and others willing to help — able bodies that can handle large dogs, good sized trucks and vans equipped with crates and ready to roll north towards the Milo Sanctuary could be urgently needed in the next 24-48 hours!

Thanks, please let me know if you can help. And if you can house a dog or a few adult cats – we’ll keep a list. And volunteers in Marin and north bay to Sonoma who can help – please let me know!

Thanks again very, very much, Lynne
