Well, I did go to the shelter to drop off a big bag of small breed dog food and a $$ donation. They had a station set up outside to receive items, but the main shelter is completely closed to the public. You can't even go inside (I wanted to take pictures to post on Craigslist etc. to see if I can drum up some support, but no, not allowed)
They are very busy with everything, so I wouldn't expect any responses to emails any time soon. They do take credit card donations over the phone. I talked to the lady at the counter and told her that they really, really need to set up a Paypal account and she wrote it down as a suggestion. Urgh, I am so impatient when it comes to stuff like that. It takes 5 minutes to do and they would get a TON of donations while this is in the news, but chances are they are going to procrastinate....
I asked how else people can help....They are set on trained volunteers and apparently have lots of foster families should any of the dogs be not adoptable. The main thing they need is financial support and small breed kibble, laundry detergent, bleach and that kind of stuff if local people want to bring things by.
Once the dogs are ready to be adopted out, they will send out a press release (no idea when that's going to be). I asked if there were any dogs with serious diseases (Parvo etc.), but they are not allowed to say anything.
So I guess it's wait and see and support if you can
