Southern California Fire Relief

Fire fighters are working 24 hour shifts to battle the fires in Ventura, also known as the "Thomas Fire." As the wildfires blaze across southern California many people and pets have been displaced. 

Dog Bless You / explore.org wants to help. We are offering a matching grant of up to $500,000 to be distributed to rescue and relief efforts. From December 9th to December 10th, any donations made to this Go Fund Me account will be doubled. 

How much should you contribute? We're asking for a donation of only $5. When you donate $5, your donation will double to $10, and you join us in solidarity to help people, dogs, cats, and horses who've all lost their homes.

**Update: we’ve extended the duration of our fundraiser. It will run until the end of 12/11. Let’s make it to $25k!
