Donations needed for CA fire victim
Some of you know that a member of the N. California Havanese club who lived in Escondido, lost their home last night to the fire down there. They weren't allowed to take their dogs into the Red Cross shelter, not even into the lobby so they could use the bathroom. They went to 7 different motels/hotels and were turned down by all because of the dogs, and in this time of crisis that is horrible. They ended up finding a vet that would keep them for the week for a ridiculous amount of money.
They are Marilyn Vaughn and Steve Sivitz. They have 3 Briards and 5 Havanese. Thank God all are safe.
Some good news today though, Steve and Marilyn found a home they can rent, where they can have there dogs. They will be moving in this weekend.
They are in need of several things immediately for the dogs. If any of you living in the S. California area can donate any of the following items, (or things you can think of for the dogs) please let me know.
1 x-large crate
3 med crates
dog beds for 5 Havanese
dog beds for 3 Briards
grooming supplies - brushes, combs, etc.
Someone else is working on a list of needed items that Marilyn and Steve could use for themselves and their home, but right now that isn't as clear since there rental home will be furnished.
