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
food bowls
grooming supplies - brushes, combs, etc.
towels
pee pads

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.

Thank you,

for Marilyn Vaughn

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of Marilyn and Steve's home. I've been complaining about being on evacuation standby, now what was I thinking.

I live in San Marcos, just tell me where to deliver things for Marilyn and the furbabys

Call me and tell me when to start delivering. I'll call my dog loving friends at work and we'll get in action. It'll give us something to do while we wait to bge evacuated.

Thank you Dana. I will call you with information when I have more. Right now trying to get a list of what we can get to them and your offer is so welcome.

How far away are you from Escondido?

I'm next door, waiting to be evacuated from the same fire. I'm 10 minutes away.

I've got some of the things on the list right now and will go to Petco tomorrow and buy some of the others
I can deliver tomorrow.

Kathy - what can us on the East Coast do?? Can we send supplies for the pups from here? God Bless you for starting this drive, I am sure they are so appreciative. I am so glad that so far Susan and Dana are safe - we are all thinking of you guys!!

Kathy,
If she needs a temp havanese home, I am more than happy to help out too! I have a little house but a fenced in yard but could temporarily house a few. Unfortunetly, I don't have much stuff to give- I just moved here with barely anything myself but could definitely make a donation.

Keep me posted if she needs anything else-transport help, etc.

How sad that the hotels wouldnt let her in either!!!

fire victim

Laurief- well here I am in a perfect position to help Marilyn. I spoke with her when I first got Oliver and she referred me to her groomer where I have since met a couple of her Havs.

I've already started something with my dog friends from work. We'll try to gather the items she needs and deliver.

I've also asked my friend at work to help me get a $$ drive going for the things that we'd have to buy. So I'm already headed in that direction.

Kathy if you feel comfortable directing $$ to Petco on West Valley Parkway in Escondido, I'll talk with the manager there to see what they can do for a fire victim to see if we can get the money to go further.

Kathy, yes please let me know if there's something that we on the East Coast can do!

Dana, you might want to remove your phone number from your post as this is a public forum and anyone can see it. I am happy to hear that you are well and I hope that you won't have to be evacuated (hopefully the fires won't go too near your home). I will be sending positive thoughts your way!
