Larimer County Fires Request from Larimer County 4H
Posted on Sat, June 30, 2012

Some of the animals housed at the fairgrounds and local shelters may not have a home to return to.  Some may need a place to stay while their area is cleaned up.

Our 4-H community is a wonderful resource of caring people who would like to help.  Please let me know if you are able to take in any animals for the next few weeks, or even months.

We are compiling a list of 4-H contacts who can help the fire victims.  You can send an email to our office at and let us know if you can take in some animals.  Please include what type of animals you have space for, how many, what type of care (feed twice a day, or out on pasture?), who would supply feed (owner or you?).  Any offers to help, large or small, is very much appreciated!

The Ranch is also looking for help caring for the animals that are housed on the grounds for the next week.  As time goes on, volunteers are dwindling.  Help is needed in the barns from 8:00 - 11:00 a.m. and from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m.  Volunteers are cleaning, feeding and watering during these times.  The Ranch would like to have 5 people for each shift, each day for the next week.  If you would like to sign up to help, please email me at and let me know what time and day(s) you can help.

Thank you,
