Berkeley Humane in Need

The Berkeley East Bay Humane Society has been providing shelter and care for animals in need for decades. Early Thursday morning, a fire broke out that did about a half-million dollars' worth of damage to their building. Most of the cats awaiting adoption died; all of the dogs survived.

A Berkeley Humane representative told us that they've had more than enough offers to foster the surviving animals. What they most need now is money.

We've gotten a couple of fine cats from Berkeley Humane and their dog trainer is first-rate, working miracles with our sometimes-challenging pooch. The folks there do good work.

If you can donate a few bucks, that'd be swell. Go to the Berkeley Humane home page, scroll down, and look in the left-hand navigation bar for the DONATE button.
