American Humane Gives Emergency Grant to Arizona Animal Shelter Evacuated By Wildfire

Second Chance Center for Animals in Flagstaff, Ariz., Evacuates 180 Animals and Sets Up Temporary Animal Shelter

As the wildfire near Flagstaff, Ariz., continues to grow, the Second Chance Center for Animals has been forced to evacuate with 180 animals and set up a temporary outdoor shelter beyond the fires’ range at Fort Tuthill County Park in Flagstaff, the American Humane Association gave Second Chance Center for Animals a $5,000 emergency grant for supplies that are needed at the temporary shelter. The temporary shelter is also taking in pets of people who are evacuating their homes and have not been able to make other arrangements for their pets.

The Coconino Humane Society in Flagstaff was first evacuated due to the fire last Friday, and Second Chance Center for Animals took their animals. Now that both shelters have been evacuated, the temporary shelter is caring for all of the shelter animals in the area. The shelter continues to need supplies and volunteers during this emergency sheltering effort, which is expected to last for days or weeks.

“Emergency situations like this require a lot of resources in a short amount of time, and we hope that our grant will help the shelter acquire the items they desperately need to care for the animals,” said Debrah Schnackenberg, vice president of American Humane’s Animal Protection Programs. “These types of events often bring communities together, and it is our hope that people will unite to help these animals.”

American Humane is currently seeking additional funds to be able to provide grants to other sheltering organizations that need assistance. Grants are available based on resources and the generosity of the organization’s donors. Learn more about how to donate online at www.americanhumane.org/donate.
