The Acton Forest fires are racing straight towards the Southern California Basenji Rescue.org (aka Medfly Brigade) ?run by Karen & Chuck Jones. I spoke to her on 8/30 at 2:30pm. She could only say they were in trouble & fleeing with their clan of Basenji rescues. The News I saw said: 80' tall flames, wild, only 5% contained, little hope in sight. It'd take many miracles for the ranch to survive. I'll post destination updates, since some of the evacuation roads were unsafe or blocked.
Please spread the word, and if anyone can help, or make suggestions, please let me know. Maybe a senior forum member can set up a fund?
Karen will need $$ to pay for temp shelters and extra help.
I'll wait to post their phone/email, so they don't get overwhelmed
with condolences for now.
Thank you ever so much!
I have one of Karen's Basenjis & live in Alameda, CA.
