The Texas fires, for the most part, are contained if not in control, and Chap and I have been pitching in to help area pet groups find and treat animals lost and wounded in the wildfires. Burned paws, legs, bellies and ears, some blinded, most dehydrated . . . my heart is just broken for them. Lost and confused, some of them didn’t make it.
And the heat and drought keep coming. I’ve decided to leave out the shots of animals who didn’t make it, and for every tear, there have been joyous reunions for people who lost their homes, but were reunited with their pets.
And some of these lost pets are looking for new homes . . .

While many folks are lending a hand and opening generous hearts and wallets for those who lost their homes. We’re hoping some can find it in their hearts to help all creatures, great and small.
