John & Colleen Thill Wildfire Fund

On their 35th wedding anniversary, Octorber 9, 2017, John & Colleen Thill had to evacuate their home with only their animals & the clothes on their backs. They were devastated to find out that their home and family business had been burned to the ground overnight in the tragic wildfires of Sonoma County.  Sadly this loss included four kitties that were living in the shop, unable to be rescued from the fire.
John & Colleen are in need of funds for their daily living expenses & to pay their bills until things are sorted out.

We so appreciate any amount large or small that could help them through this difficult time.

Funds are being coordinated by John Thill's family members in California & will be instantly distributed to help them as soon as possible.
on top of all this I have broken my left leg and had to have surgery in order to put a plate in my leg. Recovery will take about 10 weeks to get the cast off. And then the rehabilitation will come after that. Don’t know how long the rehabilitation will take.  Thank you all for your generous donations!!
