Support for Jon & Otter

Hi all,

On February 21, my brother Jon’s apartment in the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco caught fire. He lost his belongings, but there’s a cause more dear to his heart - his cat Otter suffered from smoke inhalation and has severe trauma to his lungs. Firefighters were able to rescue Otter from the apartment and the media  was initially optimistically reporting that Otter would be okay, but he is currently in the ICU and his status is questionable.  If you know Jon at all, you know this little chubster means the world to my brother. He needs all the help he can get to cover Otter’s lofty vet bills in the coming days in hopes he can recover. 

Many friends said they wanted to help out via GoFundMe, so I figured I’d throw something together. No donation is too small. Thanks so much for all of your support.

ABC7 SF reporter Matt Keller tweeted out this pic and video of Otter:
