Jane Clancy died saving the lives of 40 dogs during a house fire.
I don’t know how to say this. We are all in tears. I have a different request today. Our rescue community was rocked to the core yesterday. A fellow rescuer’s home and rescue caught fire and burned to the ground. All Breeds Rescue and Adoption caught on fire and sadly the owner Jane Clancy did not survive. She died trying to save as many animals out of the house as she could.
Jane initially made it outside and heard the cries of the animals being burned alive as the fire spread quickly. She rushed back inside and was able to break a window and get many animals to safety before the roof fell on her, killing her and the rest of the animals in the house. Jane is a hero. Her rescue will be posting updates for her memorial and candle light vigil. More info on that here.
In total 47 dogs and 1 cat was saved and some have medical needs that need to be taken care of! Also we want to thank all rescues and rescuers, friends and family that came out to work together to make this happen! It takes a village and that village came together this morning.
Our partners at Troy Animal Rescue Project went to the scene and took in 20 surviving dogs and puppies. There were several other rescues that came to help as well. TARP have one of the last puppies she got the window to safety before the roof fell in. This puppy has burned fur. They have several other puppies suffering from smoke inhalation.
They need help with vetting and healing these 20 precious souls. There are three heart-worm positive dogs. As well as vaccinations and spay/neuters on top of burns and physiological scars. This was not something rescuers planned on or prepared for. How could they? I have attached photos of some of the animals they took in as well as an article on the fire. To say your help is needed would be an understatement. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated including prayers for our rescue community and Ms. Jane’s family. Jane died doing the one thing she did best… that is saving lives. Jane, you are a hero and will be greatly missed.
In the wake of this tragedy, Hendrick & Co. has created this campaign to help The Troy Animal Project and rescuers who are fighting to save the lives of the animals displaced by the fire. They need your help today. Every purchase we can make a difference for the animals who survived.
