Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Like talking about dogs? Like meeting our fabulous foster pups? Outreach is key to helping spread the word on OPH, rescue work and dogs.

These events occur on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, exact dates and times can be found on our website by following this link: https://ophrescue.org/events.
