Sylmar Fire Causes Guide Dog Evacuation

Over the weekend the fire in Sylmar, CA came very close to the Guide Dogs of America headquarters. Here’s the story that Fox News reported a couple days ago:

One of the many places threatened by the fires this weekend was the California headquarters of the Guide Dogs of America in Sylmar, but thanks to numerous dedicated volunteers about a hundred Guide Dogs of America were evacuated safely. Christina Gonzalez was in Sylmar with the amazing story.

Here’s a link to the video clip on the story: Several Guide Dogs Evacuated During Fire in Sylmar.

I first heard about the fire and evacuation this past Saturday and was told that the dogs were safely evacuated. By the time I actually spoke to anyone in our Guide Dog group to offer assistance I was told that hundreds of volunteers already went to help GDA and all the dogs were doing just fine.

  1. There are lots of dogs who need help due to the fires here in the Southland. LA Times ran an excellent piece on this, which I linked from here: http://tinyurl.com/6562rt. Also linked is the LA SPCA for donations.
