House Fire

We rescue dogs. then there comes a time when the dog actually rescues us. This happened the morning of June 13th 2018. My daughter Sarah, and her30587112_1528936166677264_r.jpeg30587112_1528936213873734_r.jpeg husband Matt Hill were asleep, they woke to a loud popping noise, their dog Wes started to growl. Matt headed downstairs to see that their deck was engulfed in flames. Matt and Sarah were able to get all 6 of their rescue dogs out of the house. Within minutes their home turned into an inferno. Having no cell service Sarah drove up the road to a neighbors house to call the fire department. As she left the house she heard one explosion after another as the windows of the house blew out. They lost everything, but have each other. Sarah and Matt are grateful for the first responders who came and showed such compassion at their time of total devastation. They are so thankful to all their friends who came and helped them sift through the rubble of their home. Sarah and Matt are most thankful to Wes, who saved their lives, and the lives of their 5 other rescue dogs. Any donation would be so much appreciated.
