    We count ourselves fortunate to have the fairground here in Kittitas County. I can not imagine what things would be like for all the evacuees with livestock and pets if there had not been a place for the animals to go during the fire.

    I think that is so wonderful of that vet. to be caring for the animals, that needed shelter. The young woman who stayed to help the animals,also, is amazing to do that. We need more people in the world like that.
