Fire Relief for Dr. Berends DVM

Dr. Berends, DVM lost his vehicles, veterinary equipment, supplies and his garage in a terrible fire. He is a beloved member of our community. His focus is on the animals, not on wealth. He has suffered a rough year after a heart attack and now this. Please help offset the costs that insurance won't cover.This is his livelihood and source of income. Thank you Doc for the middle of the night calls, coming even when you were sick or only days after a surgery to help our horses and us.
