Thinking about all of our friends in Fort Mac!
Glad that so far everyone has made it out OK with their families. Sad for all those who had to leave behind pets 🙁
Pet Update: if you know anyone who was forced to evacuate without pets, there are two websites you can direct them to:
The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo has an Emergency Pet Rescue Request form.
The Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) website has two online forms: one for those evacuees who need assistance, and one for those who can offer assistance or space for animals in need. http://aarcs.ca/ymm-assistance-forms/
Some friends had to leave everything behind, some had to leave straight from work and didn’t have enough gas to get far. But they made it! Thanks to all Albertans who stepped up to assist.

Canadian Red Cross. Evacuees can register online. Those who want to help can donate online.
