While Alexx was out applying for a job this morning she got a phone call from her neighbor saying her house was on fire.

She came home to her dog on oxygen being rushed out by an ambulance, her toddler was at daycare. Her dog Boo experienced horrible smoke inhalation and was unconscious when first responders arrived.

Seeing her toddler's little shoes and toys all burnt to a crisp, is crushing to us all, yet to a single mom with all her focus on raising a healthy, safe beautiful baby this is devastatingly tragic.   If you that have been following her story know how hard she has worked to have a safe and healthy place to raise her child.  Article Chico News and Review 8-31-2017 

Firefighters have said they think the fire was caused by the old furnace and turns out the walls were full of dry rot and dead squirrels

The house is uninhabitable and the property company said it could take 6 months to a year to remodel/fix.

 Please if you can help with anything here is what she needs:

Toddler clothes size 3T (she only has the clothes that are on her at daycare)

Diapers - Size 5 (she is allergic to a lot of diapers and chemicals . - the ones that don't cause a reaction are Open Nature brand from Safeway)

Wipes - Same deal as diapers

Grain Free Dog Food

Any money to help pay for her dog's vet bill

Any leads on a place to live on a limited income would be eternally held in deep appreciation. The red cross is going to help put them in a motel for a couple days
