A Message From Bari Mears

Following yesterday's post, "The Animals of the Wallow Fire,"  I received an email from Bari Mears, the founder and president of PACC911.  I thought it was worth sharing.

I think the response from our community was the most rewarding part of this tragic set of circumstances.  People came forward and donated to help the animals.  They truly cared and took their time and resources to help.  What I love most is that for the first time the animals and their welfare became a mainstream concern.  In past tragedies, we kept hearing how the animals were left behind, how they were a secondary concern.  This was not the case in Arizona.  Our wonderful people came forward and made all the difference.  I was happy that PACC911 was able to get the ball rolling.  But our awesome community sure carried it to the finish line!                                                                                                                     Bari
