Help pets affected by fires

Forest fires devastated communities throughout Oregon this summer, affecting not only countless human beings, but animals — including cats, dogs and other small animals, as well as livestock, including horses, cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens. Local feed and pet stores, businesses and organizations have united to collect goods to help those in need through The Portland Metro Animal Relief Effort.

Participating member Lorri Bishop of Mighty Dog Daycare and Playhouse in Gladstone is working to make people aware of the need and the drive. Donations are being accepted at numerous locations, listed below, as is a list of items most needed.

Once gathered, donated items are taken to coordinators who deliver them to fire-affected areas with the most need for each item gathered.
