Williams Family House Fire

On December 3, 2014, the Williams family received a phone call that there had been a fire at their home. Luckily, no humans were home at the time but beloved pets were. The family lost their pet turtle and a young kitten they were fostering. Their dog, 2 adult cats, and additional foster kitten were rescued by the Grand Rapids Fire Department. The dog and kitten were in rough shape, as well as their home. 

If you know Ben and Sara, you know that they are always willing to step up to the plate for any friends and family. As the parents of three young children, the financial portion of the care for their pets and replacing of items can become burdensome. 

If you are able to donate any amount, the family would greatly appreciate it. Please feel free to share this page and spread the word! Let's help the Williams family have a happy and less stressful holiday!
