    Pasadena Humane Society helps evacuees, and their animals, during the wildfires

    Leaving, in a hurry, during a mandatory evacuation due to fire, with a frightened and confused pet, often creates more stress and worry. Especially when many places won't take animals. Where to go next, is the question. What to do.

    Pasadena Humane Society is helping out those who need assistance with their animals during the Station fire. The shelter has received more than 200 animals over the last few days, but they are ready to help out with more. They're on Raymond -- it is a sizable, beautiful facility -- and they've got a hotline going: 626-792-7151. Ask for dispatch if you're calling after normal business hours.

    If you are not an evacuee but want to help, the Humane Society is accepting donations: money is welcome, of course, and supplies like towels and food. Eye all the needs here.

    The Langham Pasadena also just announced that they've got reduced rates for people under evacuation order, plus, the hotel is waiving the pet fees (animals should be 40 pounds or under, asks the hotel). Call 626-568-3900 for more info.
