There are plenty of organizations who are working to help those who have been displaced by the fires in Sevier County, obviously, but the Sevier County Humane Society had to be evacuated last night, and numerous animals are going to be impacted by the loss of property and the ongoing evacuations in the Gatlinburg area.

The Knoxville-area Humane Society has started a crowd-funding for the Sevier County Humane Society.

It's been a bad night down there, and they're looking at another rough one--we've got severe storms rolling into the area overnight, and there will be high winds and (unfortunately) lightning activity. (My home is a couple hours north and east of Gatlinburg and Sevier County, and we're nowhere near as dry as they have been, and we're pretty dry.)

Thanks all. <3

As of 11:20 pm PST, they've got $33,000 of their $10,000 goal! I feel a little better about the world tonight.
