Tragic Hay and Trailer Fire on I-70

We are your neighbors at Tuffs Animal Rescue at Tuffs Ranch in Bennett, CO.

We love serving you in this community by providing sanctuary to animals in need-and today, we need your help!

At Manilla and I-70 at 1:50 pm this past Saturday, July 30th, our trailer caught on fire hauling $12,000 worth of hay, equivalent to 2 months of feed for our rescue animals. You'll hear about this tragedy on the news tonight. But, right now, you can be a part of the solution.
Please make a tax-deductible donation in any amount you can spare!

The investigators ruled it 'spontaneous combustion'; all hay and our trailer are a complete loss.

Tuff's Animal Rescue is a registered non-profit and charity in the state of Colorado and a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization since 2021.

EIN - 87-3432359
