Living Angel Sandra Bullock Donates $100,000 To Help California Wildfires' Animal Victims
Sandra Bullock again proved that she really is Miss Congeniality after she made a hefty donation to assist with rescuing the animal victims of the blazes.
As the deadly fires continue to rage across California, claiming at least 31 lives, destroying homes, and displacing thousands of animals. Sandra donated to the Humane Society of Ventura County to help provide care for animals evacuated in the blazes.
The society's official penned a heartfelt post over Facebook, thanking the actress for the generous donation and informing followers how the money will aid in ongoing rescue efforts.
“Our efforts for rescuing and caring for evacuated animals from the Hill and Woolsey fires had caught her attention and her team reached out to the shelter to show their support,” they wrote.
"Sandra Bullock and her family have reached out to other nonprofit organisations both during this incident and in the past. However, this time she wanted to contribute to those on the frontline rescuing animals in peril and hope others will choose to do the same.”
They continued, "This donation will help the HSVC provide 24/7 care for the scores of horses, bulls, donkeys, pigs, chickens, ducks, dogs, cats and other pets evacuated from the fires."
"The HSVC pledges to care for these animals for as long as is needed or until their owners feel comfortable in safely reuniting their families. From all of us on staff at the HSVC, our dedicated volunteers, and the animals in our care, we thank you for your kind consideration," they added.
Countless celebrities have spoken out on social media about the fires, with Miley Cyrus revealing on Instagram that her and fiancé Liam Hemsworth's house was among the destroyed.
The LA Times reported that the fires were "fuelled by dry conditions and extreme winds" and continue to burn.
