brothers home burned, no insurance

My name is Al Dunkin. My wifes brother and sister in-law, Rick and Deb Agars house burned this past Easter Sunday, and they lost almost everything in the fire. They were not home at the time, but their dog, Bear, was, along with his puppy freind Lucas, and both were rescued by a kind neighbour. Unfortuneatly he burned his paws in the fire and is receiving lazer treatments, from Sears animal clinic, to help them heal. They had no insurance on the home and have no  money to pay for the treatments for Bear or anything else. They are staying with my wife and I until they can find a new place to live. As I said, they had no insurance and the home is a write off, so they are looking for help for themselves as well as Bear. They have had several people helping with clothing, furnitue, fridge, stove and some other things , but they have no home to put it in. This is why I'm doing this, I would like to be able to raise enough here to get Bear his treatments that he needs for his feet to heal and to get them into a place of their own. They would greatly appreciate any help they can get to help them though this very difficult time. It has been a difficult winter because Rick works seasonally and Deb had been working until November when she went into the hospital and had to have a toe removed due to diabetas. Since then she has had to go back in twice and have another toe taken each time, so she now is recovering from that and is now not able to work. Because of this they have NO MONEY.  We all would like to thank everyone in advance who is kind enough to respond to this by donating to our family members and helping them out of a devistating situation.  Donating even a couple dollars would be a great help. Thank you all again.
