I first learned about this through my friend Ronnie Chandler owner of Critter Keepers in Janesville. She has offered to house animals during a crisis many times. I had no idea there was an actual group of volunteers out there. Cowboy 911 started as a facebook group and according to their website now has 27,000 members across the Nation. They have rescued thousands of animals from fire, flood, snowstorm. Our local chapter has been mighty busy lately; running rescue missions for goats, chickens, horses, dogs, even people in a few situations. They still had animals and people from Beckworth fire sheltered when they had to begin running horse trailers into the Dixie fire. They cooperate with the first responders to save lives.
Food, housing, transport, halters, lead ropes, kennels, cash and more all provided by generous donations. That's where we can help too.
Check them out at https://cowboy911.org or on Facebook
Cowboy911's tagline is Neighbors helping Neighbors. Really that's what it's all about.
To all our Hometown Heroes volunteering with Cowboy 911, we thank you. God bless.
