Fort McMurray Wildfire
The Beast took so much from Fort McMurray… But, we fought and fought despite our losses.
Efforts to rescue the pets of Fort McMurray were absolutely amazing! We have so many people and organizations to thank.
The WBSAH Team hopped in to do our part:
- We were fortunate to take a back up of our electronic files so we could provide information to other Veterinary Hospitals; one of our Doctors manned a phone 24/7
- Some returned to Fort McMurray to volunteer during the evacuation assessing and treating rescued pets
- Some volunteered at evacuation centres around Alberta giving medications to pets
- Some volunteered at the reunification centre in Edmonton assessing and treating animals as they arrived from Fort McMurray to prepare them to rejoin their displaced families
Fort McMurray pitched in and we could not be more proud to be a part of this community.
