During the recent Station Fire, the Pasadena Humane Society took in over 370 animals when owners were forced to evacuate their homes. Due to health regulations, animals cannot be taken into human evacuation shelters, even if they are in a cage or carrier.
Regardless whether a community was serviced by the Pasadena Humane Society, persons evacuated due to the fire had their pets boarded free of charge by the society.
The Pasadena Humane Society immediately went into “emergency mode” and was open 24 hours a day to take in, care for, and reunite families when people were allowed back into their homes.
“Please join us in thanking and supporting the Pasadena Humane Society for everything they do to help our animal friends, as well as supporting CV DOGS in our efforts to bring a local dog park to the Crescenta Valley,” said Cheryl Davis, founder of CV DOGS.
“We realize times are financially difficult right now, so even if [folks] can donate $1 or $5, it all adds up.”
CV DOGS will take part in the Wiggle Waggle Walk benefiting the humane society from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday at Brookside Park, 360 N. Arroyo Blvd. in Pasadena.
In addition to the walk, there will be a performance by Muttley Crew K9 Entertainment, food and refreshments, games, animal related vendors, a doggy fashion show, pet and owner look-a-like and talent contests. There is no charge to attend.
