As you know, the impact of the wildfire in Fort McMurray and surrounding area has been devastating to Alberta and our entire country. With over 80, 000 people displaced, thousands of pets were left behind in this emergency covering over 100, 000 hectares of land.
Since the beginning of May, when the fire first broke out, CKC began sharing updates about the unfolding tragedy in Fort McMurray via our social networks to assist those who may be affected. We also shared reports of the incredible kindness that emerged—from heroic first responders, to the compassionate efforts of airlines such as West Jet, Air Canada and Canadian North, who helped transport pets and their families to safety, and provided much-needed supplies.
Many shelters, rescue groups, breed clubs and kennels took in dogs and continue to connect owners back with their best friends. If you were forced to leave a pet behind during the evacuations and have not yet been reunited – please register here: http://asset.rmwb.ca/pet-rescue/
If you need to speak to someone, support is always available. Call the Alberta Mental Health Helpline
anytime at 1-877-303-2642.
If you would like to donate to the Red Cross Alberta Fires Emergency Appeal, please visit www.redcross.ca or call 1-800-418-1111.
The next few months will be challenging as many struggle to rebuild so much of what they have lost. Our members, their dogs and the province of Alberta will remain in our thoughts and we will continue to share information that may be of value to those affected by this tragedy
