Four adults received a phone call from neighbors at approximately 8:30 p.m. Friday night that their home in the 600 block of Ash St SE in Dallas had caught on fire. They arrived home to find the firefighters and police there. Of their three dogs, only one survived.
The pit bull was rescued by one of the female fire fighters who heard the dog whimpering and broke a door down to rescue it. Volunteers from the Willamette chapter of the American Red Cross were called in Saturday afternoon and are providing food, shelter, clothing, and emotional support.
How to Help: In Oregon, the American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disaster every 20 hours; supplies more than 90 percent of Oregon’s blood; teaches thousands of Oregonians lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization – not a government agency – and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
