Help Feed Evacuated Livestock

$11,612 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 85 people in 27 days

This page is dedicated to raising funds to help feed evacuated livestock in northwest BC. Families and livestock have been displaced by wildfires in BC and many other northerners have opened up their homes, corrals, pastures, chicken coops and rabbit hutches to housing these animals. We need to raise funds to help provide feed and that's what this page is for.

The regional district covers a portion of these feed costs and we are fund raising to cover more of that cost. We are short on feed and need to get grain, pellets and hay to several of the evacuated livestock asap! You can follow evacuation orders and alerts on the Regional District's website:  https://www.rdbn.bc.ca/

You can donate right here on this page or you can send money  directly to the "Northwest Forest Fire Support" (NWFFS) account at the Bulkley Valley Credit Union:
BV Credit Union: Bank-809, Transit - 37010, Account -660500127803
Or you can email money to NWFFS team member - Jocelyn Bell  j4bell@gmail.com

All funds donated on this page will go into the NWFFS account and be used to offset the costs of feed (and/or transporting the feed) for evacuated livestock. Jocelyn will disperse the funds to those who have helped relocate evacuated animals and had to pay for feed. We can only disperse what is raised and might not be able to cover 100% of the total costs but every, little bit helps! This is being done as an additional support measure to what is offered by the regional district. For more info -  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1294292134041530/

We are so incredibly grateful to those fighting and containing these fires as well as the families and communities who are supporting these crews. Wishing everyone the best and hoping our firefighters and northerners stay safe.

WOW! Thank you SO much to all of you who have donated. We've raised over $10,000 so far!! This gives us much needed relief for now and we've included a photo of some of the rescued horses enjoying their new pasture. We hope it brings a smile to your face and helps you realize just how much you've done to help.

With more than 10,000 animals being evacuated, we've calculated that it costs approximately $5,444 per day to feed them. (You can read more about the rescued animals and efforts here: https://www.nelsonstar.com/news/the-magnitude-is-unfathomable-b-c-animal-lover-helps-livestock-flee-wildfires/)

So, we're raising our goal to $15,000.

Winter is coming - When you think about how many fences, barns and sheds that have burned and were full of hay for the winter. Or how much pastureland has burned that these animals would have grazed on - reality starts to set in. Some of the animals won't be able to return after all the fires are out because the fences have burned down.

We wanna help give these animals and northern families the best chance.
