Marking the worst fire season in Colorado history, three major blazes are burning out of control, destroying hundreds of homes, prompting mass evacuations in Colorado Springs and threatening the city of Boulder 100 miles away. Our hearts and prayers go out to the wildfire regions of Colorado and Montana, where more than 36,000 people have been evacuated from their homes. Over 300 homes have been destroyed including historic landmarks.
What is often underreported and forgotten are the hundreds of animals, including pets, horses, livestock and other large animals that have become displaced due to the fires. In Colorado and Montana, local rescues and shelters are working around the clock to ensure the safety of all animals. Animal shelters are beyond capacity, and stories of local businesses and residences creating make-shift shelters abound.
Hendrick Boards wants to make a difference for animals by supporting the local rescues and shelters in Colorado. From now and until July 4th, Hendrick Boards is offering a limited-edition tee that sparks a $10 donation to animal shelters and rescues in Colorado. Called “Be the Person”, the animal-saving, rescue loving tee will directly support the efforts to save, care for, house and feed abandoned and displaced animals in the fire-ravaged areas of Colorado.
“Our hearts go out to the animals affected by the fire-ravaged areas of Colorado and Montana,” said David Hendrickson. “We want to make sure that the frontlines of animal welfare and protection in Colorado and Montana are given the resources needed to protect all animals and hope that a simple tee can make a difference.”
