Wildfire Update: AHS Cleared to Begin Rescue Efforts

Written by: Kimberly Ring

Yarnell Hill Wildfire Update

The Arizona Humane Society has been cleared to go behind the Yarnell Hill fire line and begin rescuing companion animals in need.   AHS, the state’s designated responder for animals in distress during natural disasters, was deployed to the fire yesterday and already has a handful of pets in our care. We expect that number to grow as we search the homes of those evacuated from the fire.   If you have been displaced and need help locating your pets, please contact 602.390.6429.   Many of you have contacted us asking how to donate to our Disaster Relief Fund. You can do so here. Thanks to generous donations from Hill’s Science Diet, PetSmart Charities and thoughtful individuals, we thankfully have all the food, crates and supplies we currently need. However, will continue to assess the situation and let you know if need arises.
