HOW TO HELP the Colorodo Fire horses – and other animals (and desperate owners)!

Thursday, July 5th, 2012 | Filed under Handy Tips

Many of you have asked me how you can help the animal victims of the Colorado Fires.

Well, I found this on FB.  I didn’t write it, and I’m not sure who did except for the two names listed on the bottom.  I cannot vouch for the information.  However, it appears to be a firm starting point.

So, here you go and THANK YOU for thinking of the animals in Colorado!
