The Ada County Sheriffs’ office started a pilot program with the Idaho Humane Society at their dispatch center. Two weeks ago they welcomed their first foster dog, an 8-year-old Yorkshire Terrier who was rescued from a hoarding incident in Elmore County.
“They were in horrible conditions, they were matted, they had cheatgrass embedded in them, they had filthy kennels, stagnant water, and they were in awful conditions,” said Laurien Mavey, who works for the Idaho Humane Society.
Ukraine’s Fire Fighters Need Our Help
Since February 24, the day Russia invaded Ukraine, we have seen hundreds of photos of destroyed civic and residential housing. It is also just as common to see the Ukrainian fire fighters in those photos and videos.
The brave men and women of the Ukrainian firefighting units, formerly known as the State Emergency Service, are constantly in danger as they rescue people and suppress fires resulting from the shelling. Regardless of the danger, we know, from our US firefighters, they will stand their ground to assist those in need.
As international assistance for military and humanitarian aid flows into Ukraine, we cannot forget that the fire fighters have specific needs for equipment resupply. As the Russian onslaught continues on the civilian areas, fire fighters are constantly using equipment that needs to be replaced so to continue the job.
We can help them to fill the need for essential protective and other equipment or support the families of these heroes who gave their lives saving others.
