Megan here, former volunteer Volunteer Coordinator for Helping Paws Across Borders, the organization who has taken it upon themselves to care for the evacuated animals at the Santa Fe Fair Grounds. I say former because I have passed on the baton to a Volunteer Coordinator with ASPCA. But I am still getting updates so that this page can stay current.

This page was thrown together so that we could have a place to direct people asking how to help with the animals at the Santa Fe Fair Grounds. And I have a lovely update as of Sunday, May 15th from the ASPCA. The animals are going back to their shelter Tuesday, May 17th! We no longer need help with laundry or anything else relation to donations and volunteering.

The community has been AMAZING! We received an overwhelming amount of support which has been such a privilege of mine to witness. I had over 200 people reaching out to help and that doesn't even include those who stopped by the donation area to drop things off, took home dirty laundry to clean, or ask how they could help. If this was you? Thank you!
