Martin Dinnes and Dr. Gay Naiditch, both veterinarians
on the Board of the Roar Foundation, were on hand
to protect and save the animals.
Los Angeles County firefighters and the Forestry Department
were able to prevent the fire from jumping Soledad
Canyon Road, with the help of Mother Nature changing
the direction of the wind just in time.
of us at Shambala are so very grateful for the extremely
brave, well-trained, dedicated firefighters who protected
became very evident to us was that, although our plan
is excellent and it worked this time, we desperately
need to raise funds to build moving evacuation crates.
The cost of steel has never been higher than it is
right now. The prices we are getting are $1,000 to
$1,500 apiece, and we will need as many as fifty.
We will also need a new truck that will handle a trailer
capable of hauling six of these crates. This is a
huge priority for us, which I'm sure you will agree.
