Please help Colorado.

Smokey and I received this forwarded email from his cousin Gisele, who lives in Laramie, WY.

Pass along to your contacts, anyone who can donate something.  The first half is designated to animals, then lower half is assisting helicopters, firefighters, and shelters.  We have people coming into Wyoming looking for places to stay, they are in the mountains camping and filling up hotels, it is hard to find a room in Denver or Ft. Collins, so they are moving up here.  Laramie is only about 60 miles north of Ft. Collins, so Laramie and Cheyenne would be the next stop north.

    Excellent info – thanks for posting. We’re without elec in my area – so my house suddenly has a few extra furry friends. Makes me realize how tough it could be. (/damn – How do you evacuate a wolf sanctuary?)

    Actually, I’ve collected blankets and towels and am sending them to Moore Animal Hospital this week. I called them last week after I saw this info and FB spoke to them to confirm that they could still receive mail and that they still needed stuff. They were super happy to be getting things! Thanks for posting this info, Kat!
