The story from the Houston Pittie Pack hit me this morning like a ton of bricks. The humans were able to escape to safety from a devastating fire, but their house has been destroyed. This is a literal story of lost everything except the clothes on their backs. One of Sandra’s notes this morning described a neighbor raiding a baby shower gift for Pampers. Another note described someone bringing dog food and bowls for the surviving dogs.
And that is where the pain really intensifies. Sandra also lost five of her seven rescue Pit Bulls. As a family of rescues, we can not even begin to fathom the depths of pain the family is feeling.
So they are grieving their losses and trying to hold things together without a home – all a week before Christmas. But, as always, the dog blogging community is rallying. This chip-in has been created by a very reliable source and will appear on a number of blogs. All of the money will go to the family to help them buy the basics they need over the next few days. If you are able, please click this link and help a fellow rescuer.
