We are working up in north east Arizona to help the pets and families with the wild fires. Communities are still under a pre-evacuation order, including one community that has been evacuated. The community of Cedar Creek was just added this morning 6/20, to the pre-evacuation list. If they evacuate, they will be directed to the town of Springerville, an hour and half away - because the US60 to Show low is still closed. 

U-haul provided a truck and one tank of gasoline worth $700 for us to get the supplies to Round Valley Rescue in Springerville!  Thanks to your donations and U-haul, we took Round Valley Rescue $5000 of supplies including pet food, kitty litter, bowls etc.

We still need cash donations to continue to do this disaster work right now!

Now it is up to you. whether we go out depends on our ability to raise more funds fast!  Will you help?      Pass a empty bowl around your business, group, friends or post it on your social media feeds for us, please?

On line donations can be made to: https://azgives.org/c/GivesDay/a/emptybowlpetfoodpantry
They don't take out fees and will pass it through immediately, to our bank account, where we can access it for gas and other travel expenses!. We and the pets you are going to help~ thank you, so much during this wildfire time in rural Arizona.

We couldn't help these disaster victims without you!

Why do we have a

"Maricopa County Citizen's Corp"?

When the Arizona Central Region Citizen's  Corp dissolved in 2015, we saw a gap that was needed to be filled.  Most Citizen's Corps, have a focus on having Professional Responders/Rescuers and high energy, healthy citizens involved. We refer people who wish to get involved with high energy  to CERT, MRC and other response groups to those located in their city (or nearby).

68% of families have at least one pet!

(Thank you Wag Magazine, for this fact from the 2015-2016 survey by the APPA  National Pet Owners!)

What about the Grandmother with Alzheimers, with her cat,~the one thing that keeps her grounded and connected, or the young boy with Autism with his doggie that keeps him calm but isn't a service dog?  What about seniors, families who care for ill or injured at home, functionally disabled (27% in Arizona are functionally disabled, up from 25% the previous year) Parents with  very young children and more, with pets and service dogs?

Our focus is education on evacuation and the other decisions within the first hours of disaster response, and to build relationships with local community:~churches, schools, small businesses who dont even know they are required by OSHA law (1910.35-38)  to have these plans in place and practiced!  Check out more information here:
