Sandra Bullock donated $100,000 to the Humane Society of Ventura County to help save animals from the wildfires in California.
The Humane Society of Ventura County took to Facebook on Sunday to give thanks to Bullock and her family. Bullock’s grateful donation will help animals including horses, bulls, donkeys, pigs, chickens, ducks, dogs, cats and other pets evacuated from the fires.
The post said, “The Humane Society of Ventura County was deeply humbled today by a $100,000 donation from Sandra Bullock and family. Our efforts for rescuing and caring for evacuated animals from the Hill and Woolsey fires had caught her attention and her team reached out to the shelter to show their support. Sandra Bullock and her family have reached out to other nonprofit organizations both during this incident and in the past. However, this time she wanted to contribute to those on the frontline rescuing animals in peril and hope others will choose to do the same.”
“This donation will help the HSVC provide 24/7 care for the scores of horses, bulls, donkeys, pigs, chickens, ducks, dogs, cats and other pets evacuated from the fires. The HSVC pledges to care for these animals for as long as is needed or until their owners feel comfortable in safely reuniting their families. From all of us on staff at the HSVC, our dedicated volunteers, and the animals in our care, we thank you for your kind consideration,” the post concluded.
