Friends, if you have any information on how to help animals, can you list them here?

A few items I am aware of:

-As of 3:30 p.m. I know that the Flying W. Ranch is no longer able to take large animals BUT THEY NEED HAY.

-I believe El Paso County Fairgrounds and Ebert County Fairgrounds have set up arge animal shelters. Small animal assistance was being offered at Powers Pet Emergency, which can be reached at 719-473-0482.

From the Gazette:
• The DoubleTree by Hilton, 1775 E. Cheyenne Mountain Blvd., 576-8900, is offering reduced room rates for evacuees as well as pets.

• The Norris-Penrose Events Center, 1045 Lower Gold Camp Road, 635-1101, is accepting horses from the fire, according to the Red Cross.

• The Humane Society of Pikes Peak Region, 610 Abbot Lane, 473-1741, is accepting cats, dogs and other “small critters” from the evacuated area only.

• Palmer Ridge High School, a Red Cross evacuation site, 19255 Frontage Road, Monument, is accepting pets of those staying there.

• Rampart Kennels, 5977 Templeton Gap, 591-0066, is providing free board for dogs and cats of families affected by the fire.

• The Elbert County Fairgrounds, 95 Ute Ave., Kiowa, (303) 621-3152, is accepting large animals.

• Woodmen Kennels, 740 Dublin Road, 598-4154, is accepting both small and large animals of fire evacuees Wednesday from 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. The kennels cannot, however, take cattle or horses.

• Aavondale Pet Care Center, 17140 Jones Road, Peyton, 683-4617, and neighboring acreages are taking all types of animals, including reptiles, birds, goats and horses.

Please add any information you have on shelters, and ways to make financial or material donations.

Thank you and stay safe!

I'm in Franktown and am happy to offer our basement if anyone has been displaced and needs a place to stay. It's fully furnished with king bed, living room, etc. We also have 5 acres and a small barn if there are any large animals needing a temporary place to stay.

From KOAA: For people who need a place to keep their large animals, and for people who want to offer up space to keep them, Blake Dwyer (through the Humane Society) is now the main contact. Call one of two numbers: 719-776-0725... 719-444-8301. Also, you can email Blake at blakedwyer2@gmail.com. They are working to compile a central database for this. The Humane Society is also setting up shop at the Disaster Assistance Center at 1675 Garden of the Gods Rd.

Flying W Ranch needs volunteers to help with the horses. Just stop by during the day, during business hours.
