Not a joke: Berkeley Bay Area (California, USA) suffered a fire, needs assistance  
http://www.berkeleyhumane.org/ From the website:

Breaking News: In the early morning of May 20, a major fire destroyed a large section of our shelter. We lost our entire cat sheltering area as well as laundry facilities and offices. We are currently without water, electricity and phone service.

We lost 12 of our beautiful cats that were ready for adoption but all the dogs survived and are being cared for in our kennels and at a veterinary emergency service.

Our most immediate needs are:

-Monetary donations. Any amount will help. Hit any DONATE button on the website or mail donations to:BEBHS, 2700 9th St, Berkeley,CA 94710 . Our only communication until utilities are restored will be our website and email.

Foster Homes for dogs and cats. Please Contact: foster@berkeleyhumane.org if you have temporary space for a dog or cat.

Volunteers: In the immediate future, we will have major cleaning and repair tasks as well as animal care. Please contact: volunteer@berkeleyhumane.org if you can spare some time to help once the tasks are organized.

We will post updates of our needs on the website as we assess the situation.

We want to get back to helping the community with homeless pets just as we have done since 1927. We desperately need your help in this crisis, especially with donations, to get us going again. We can only do it with your help.

Prayers and good wishes can't hurt!

One other thing you could do -- repost this to boost the signal. Maybe you have friends who could donate or volunteer?

That's true, I hadn't thought of that! (duh) I'm going to do that, then. :)
