We all wonder how we can help. I came across this interesting article, from Charity Intelligence Canada, which talks about ways we can help.
The article talks about how, during Canadian disasters, most of the support for people comes from the community groups nearby. They are the best ones to see the needs, and understand the best ways to solve them.
I also read a story about Canada North Airline, helping to evacuate people and their pets from Fort McMurray. I did a bit of online research and discovered that the Edmonton Humane Society is providing housing for pets, until they can be reunited with their owners, and giving pet food to evacuees with pets who are staying with family or friends in Edmonton.
I talked this over with Dolly and Doug, and they thought we should help. So we sent a donation to the Edmonton Humane Society's Fort McMurray Wildfire Fund. They promise that any money they don't use will be forwarded to the Fort McMurray SPCA.
If you would like to help, the Charity Intelligence Canada article gives you several local options.
