Teresa and Rusty were able to grab their 4 kitties and a couple shirts before they were suddenly evacuated from their Talent trailer home and forced to take refuge in a tiny hotel in Eugene. Teresa had also just lost her job, due to covid, so they were already struggling financially. She had recently bought a laptop to try and start some remote work from her home, but in the panic of evacuating, they failed to grab it. All of Rusty's tools were lost in the fire as well, so he has no means of income either. The little bit of insurance coverage that they do have has to be used to pay a company to haul away the burnt remains of their home. They are in a desperate situation with nowhere to turn. Please help this family and their 4 adorable kitties in their greatest time of need.
