ThomasFire continues to burn above LakeCasitas, in OakView, California(this seen from my street). The beast won't stop. 200,000+ acres and still rapidly growing. Although it's only 15% contained, I can say this is the calmest it's been since the whole ordeal started a week ago, thankgod. ••• Fire ojaistrong venturastrong oakviewstrong ojaivalley

Comment from Humane Society Ventura County:


Dear friends, we are so humbled by the outpour of support we have received at the shelter in the past week. This has without a doubt been a challenging and emotional experience for all of us at the shelter. We are still going full throttle but are doing our best to keep everyone updated on the status of the shelter and the animals in our care. However, it is difficult to find the words to express how amazing it has been to see everyone come together to help the animals displaced by the fire. These photos were taken just a few moments ago on our front patio. The patio is filled to the brim with donations brought to us from all over the region. We are in the process of organizing the items and getting them into categories so that they can start being dispersed to victims of the Thomas Fire. As of this morning, we are at capacity for donations for the next few days. We have run out of storage room for the items coming in and need a couple days to get organized and reassess our needs. If you have donations for the shelter we are humbly requesting our supporters to hold on to them for a few days until we can make room. If you have any toiletry items or food for human consumption we recommend taking these items to the following organizations who are still in desperate need of these items. Help of Ojai's West Campus off Baldwin Road Community Assistance Program Office at 108 Fox St. in Ojai Food Share in Oxnard Project Understanding in Ventura At this time, the number one way for you to support our rescue efforts is to make a monetary donation. The shelter has been staffed 24/7 since the fire began on Monday night and ALL the services provide during this crisis have been offered completely free of charge. Donations are pouring in and are greatly appreciated, but the financial need is monumental and ongoing. donation today at www.hsvc.org/thomasfire. hsvc ojai ojaivalley ojaistrong venturastrong thomasfire thomasfireojai thomasfireventura venturacounty 805 vccoast venturafire losangeles santabarbara californiafire donate animalrescueofinstagram animalrescue @helpofojaicap

Comment from Humane Society Ventura County:


Liz Alanoori @thebronzedsol drove up to the shelter yesterday from LA after she read about our animal rescue efforts on our Instagram account (HSVC_Ojai) earlier this week. After she saw our request for help, Liz and her sister were able to raise $1000 in cash and much needed items in just 2 days. When she arrived at the shelter she had a car full of items including toys, food, cages, horse and pig feed, bunny food, and treats for the dogs and cats. Many of the items she brought with her had been donated from pet stores in the Redondo Beach area including a donation of pet food, toys and collars from Rhonda Mylinn at Petco and 6 boxes of cat and dog food from Evelyn at Pet Food Market. After dropping off her donations Liz proceeded to spend the rest of the day helping out at the shelter socializing with the animals in our care. Thank you Liz for your generosity and dedication to helping displaced animals during this hectic time! If you have visited the shelter in the past week and have any photos or stories you would like to share please send them to frankiw @hsvc.org. Please put "THOMAS FIRE" in the subject line and include one photo and any information you would like us to share. Your stories will help many begin the healing process and provide inspiration and encouragement to other during these difficult times. ojai ojaivalley humanesociety ventura losangeles thomasfire thomasfireojai venturastrong venturafire losangeles santabarbara donate animalrescue ojaistrong horsesofinstagram horse rescuehorse rescuehorsesofinstagram

Spent some time volunteering yesterday with @neararussell and @nokillshelter at the @hsvc_ojai! The donation area was overflowing which was amazing to see. They're good on supplies/food right now but I'm sure they could still use a monetary donation if you can help out. They're also still in need of volunteers so go to their Instagram page and check out their latest post for details about that. ❤️🐶🐱🐷🐴🐥🐔🐮➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Repos @hsvc_ojai ( @get_repost) ・・・ We are back at it today and will get everyone updated on our status shortly.

When Ojai calls, you listen. The Sunday before the fire I woke up and KNew I had to visit. The Land has a way of doing that to me. It was surreal. I went to the Farmers Market, walked around , went to Food Harmonics the Bucha Bar and drove around looking at everything. Like it was my first time there, just soaking everything in. I kept asking myself, Why Am I Here? I don’t need anything? I Prayed & Thanked The Valley everywhere I went. Stopping and taking deep breaths, looking and feeling. The Valley of The Moon Always Feels Me Up. While driving back home and passing, Thomas Aquinas, you know the spot where the oil drips down the mountain side, and thought, I’m sure glad that we haven’t had any fires. thomasfire ojaifire ojai valleyofthemoon ojaifarmersmarket ojaivalley P.S. she has The Best 🥨 Pretzels goodbreadojai.com goodbreadojai shamanshackherbs at foodharmonics
