Help Bring the Yost, Snider family home

Eric and Shawnee took their two kids, Jerry and Alyssa, to South Dakota to see Mount Rushmore and the badlands over Presidents Day weekend. They left Shawnees father and their 3 dogs at their home of 11 years in Auburn.
Around 2 am, Shawnee received an alert on her ring camera with images of smoke and flames. Calling her landline to alert her father, the line was busy. Moments later, he was viewed on camera exiting the home through the front door.
They drove home immediately and for hours believed only her father and their male dog survived. When they arrived home miraculously, their youngest female dog Selene was rescued by Eric from the basement where she sought refuge from the flames after being unable to escape through what we assume was the back door after her father released them and they ran out of the home. The female German Shepherds who were most likely looking for their family returned into the home and became trapped. Yesterday, we remained at the house for hours in hopes of finding a trace of Lyanna, their lost, beautiful girl.
Today, they found closure that was needed, and their beloved Lyanna deceased in the basement, there was just too much water.
This has been absolutely devastating for this amazing little family.
Shawnee recently celebrated her graduation from nursing school, earning her RN and dedicating her life to helping heal others.

Let's help them heal. Help them lift this burden of financial worry and help them find home again.
