I’m sorry to say that hugs and prayers aren’t going to bring back those poor little goats that you left in the barn to burn….if this is your fire evacuation plan I suggest that you concentrate on growing vegetables and herbs (seriously) and leave the animal care to someone more responsible with a better plan. Horrible….

I represent a large owner of apartments in San Francisco. I heard Andy and Sarah’s story on NPR this morning and would like to help. We have previously assisted those who have lost their homes to fires in years past and are kicking off the program again given the huge need. If Andy and Sarah have not already secured interim housing, I think we could help for a period of several months. Please shoot me an emaill if this would be of help to them or others affected by the Bay Area’s fires.
