      URGENT ALERT FROM IN DEFENSE OF ANIMALS
      June 21, 2002

      Please Help the Animal Victims of the Arizona Rodeo
      Fire

      As you may have seen on the National News or read
      about in the news, Northeastern Arizona is
      experiencing a terrible brush fire that has burned
      more than 45,000 acres. The fire is encroaching on
      homes and is affecting companion animals, agricultural
      animals, and wildlife. The Arizona SPCA, the Arizona
      Humane Society, the Silver Creek Humane Society, the
      St. Johns' police department and other organizations
      are working together to evacuate animals and reunite
      them with their families.

      Horses and other animals such as goats and sheep are
      in great need:

      At this time, evacuated horses, foals, goats, and
      other agricultural animals are being taken to the
      Navajo County Fairgrounds in Holbrook, Arizona, the
      Taylor Fairgrounds in Taylor, Arizona and the St.
      John's Fairground in St. John's, Arizona. The
      facilities have stalls, round pins, and corrals. The
      Silver Creek Humane Society in Snowflake has been
      evacuating animals for several days.

      They need horse trailors on standby to evacuate
      animals. If you have a horse trailor that can be used
      for this purpose, please go to the Navajo Fairgrounds
      in Holbrook, Arizona or to the Taylor Rodeo Grounds in
      Taylor, Arizona or contact Barbara O'Lear, President
      of the Silver Creek Humane Society at telephone:
      928-536-5460.

      There also is a great need for food for horses and
      small agricultural animals. If you are in the
      Holbrook, Snowflake, or the Taylor area, please take
      hay, grain, and food for horses or other agricultural
      animals to the Navajo County Fairgrounds in Holbrook
      or to the Taylor Rodeo Grounds in Taylor. If you do
      not live in that area and would like to donate for the
      purchase of hay and food, please send donations
      directly to:

      The Silver Creek Humane Society
      PO Box 2112
      Snowflake, AZ 85937
