Fire Relief Fund for Kim Haegely

$15,485 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 178 people in 28 months
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Kim Haegely of “JustK9s/Kistha Haus DDR Dogs ”.   I breed German Shepherds from DDR bloodlines (East German) and Pembroke Welsch Corgis.

On Monday, August 15th, I lost my house, my kennel buildings, and all of my personal possessions to the Clayton Fire that is raging in Lake County, California.  Fortunately, I have all my dogs with me.


Above: my house before the ClaytonFire.
Below: after the ClaytonFire - everything was incinerated.



Here is a Facebook video of my property (filmed by someone else) and neighborhood after the fire.  It shows how devasting it was.

I’m raising money to help rebuild my home…my life.  The funds I receive from you will go directly towards the small and the large things: from literally rebuilding my house and kennels to putting clothes on my back and food on our table.

For updates, it's easiest for me to post photos & videos on Facebook.  Here is a link to my personal page & my group, "Justk9s/Kistha Haus DDR Dogs "

Gratefully yours,

Kim

Just a note to let everyone know things are going good. The dogs are settling in at their new home and I am just waiting on insurance. I keep hearing this will be a long process.

I am sending emails to all the Corgi organizations I can find - throughout the world asking for their support. I urge everyone to do the same. God Bless Kim and her Mom and the furkids.

Do you have fire insurance?

I've found through the experience of a fried that fire insurance does not necessarily cover the loss. For those of you who have valuable personal property, please contact you insurer regarding getting riders on your policy. Insurers will not cover unusually expensive items without riders.

I am wondering the same as Johnny Rodgers - don't you have fire insurance and if so, what does it not cover?

I live close by in Sonoma County on quite a few acres. Is there some way I can help you other than donating money? I could put you and your dogs up for a few days. I have one corgi and just lost our old 16 1/2 year old fluff boy. Check me out on FB and message me privately. Annette Cadosi Wilson

Good morning, Ms. Haegely - You don't know me, but wanted to offer a small contribution after speaking with a friend of yours who referred me to your website where I learned what happened. Best of luck to you in your rebuild effort.

Very sorry this happened to you. As long as you keep producing these incredible dogs, everything is going to be okay. Rarely a day passes without someone commenting on how beautiful or how sweet Gypsy is. And she is the best part of my everyday. Keep up the strong work.
