Southern California currently has 5 wild fires burning out of control, hundreds of structures burned and hundreds more threatened. We’ve had zero precipitation this fall, combined with heavy wind gusts make the area ripe for these frightening, devastating fires. My home isn’t affected or in any danger, I weep for the many people that have lost their homes and businesses. Prayers for all the fire fighters and residents #thomasfire#creekfire#littlemountainfire#ryefire#skirballfire

We are devastated to watch our surrounding communities go up in flames these past several weeks. So many people forced to evacuate, leaving everything behind. It has been shocking to see how many homes were overcome by the flames.
We know it is a difficult time for the families that have lost their home and belongings and we wanted to let you know that we are here when you are ready to rebuild.

If you're local...
1) Keep your companion animals inside .
2) Leave buckets of water outside for wildlife who venture into your yard.
3) In the event of an evacuation, please bring your companion animals with you.
Other ways to help:

2) Send donations to the Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation (link on blog).
3) Provide foster homes for animals through Citizens for a Humane Los Angeles, which will help clear up shelter space for animals in need. Contact the organization (link on our blog).

To those affected by #smoke and dust during the #socalfires, please make sure to do some #selfcare! Here are some tips for recovering from smoke inhalation. *If you are experiencing sever symptoms such as mental confusion, hoarse voice and shortness of breath, please go to the doctor for treatment.* - Get plenty of rest and sleep. You may feel weak and tired for a while, but your energy level will improve with time. Prop up your head on pillows to help you breathe and ease a cough. - Suck on cough drops or hard candy to soothe a dry or sore throat. Cough drops do not stop a cough. - Take cough medicine if your doctor tells you to. - Do not smoke or allow others to smoke around you. If you need help quitting, talk to your doctor about stop-smoking programs and medicines. These can increase your chances of quitting for good. - Avoid things that may irritate your lungs. This might include cold, dry air or hot, humid air. - If your doctor prescribes antibiotics, take them as directed. Do not stop taking them just because you feel better. You need to take the full course of antibiotics. - Take your medicines exactly as prescribed. Call your doctor or nurse call line if you think you are having a problem with your medicine. You will get more details on the specific medicines your doctor prescribes. - If your doctor prescribed medicine to make breathing easier, such as a bronchodilator or inhaled corticosteroid, use it exactly as directed. -If you were given a spirometer to measure how well your lungs are working, use it as instructed. This can help your doctor tell how your recovery is going.
