Evacuation Complete

At about 1:30 pm, we received the evacuation order for Chena Hot Springs. The kennel and the surrounding family was prepared and swiftly got ready to leave the area. Aliy, Allen, Kaz, Sammy, Mickey, Doug, Wes, Wendy and all the dogs left Two Rivers. SP Kennel has safely arrived at Bridgett and Scotty's home and are setting up a temporary kennel.


Ray, Ryne and Derrek, who are all wildland firefighters, are working with the hundreds of other firefighters to protect our homes and neighborhood. 

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.

I still have vivid memories of my own fire evacuation, 20 years ago now. It's a hard thing to accept that you've done all you can and just have to wait and hope. We were incredibly lucky and I hope you'll be as well. Take care - we're all sending good wishes your way.

Wow, what was that Rhino use to say?
It's never easy...but you all are always able to handle it.
Visualizing water, lots of it!
The humidity is everywhere back east.

So glad you guys were prepared & are all safely away. Hoping we don't lose any of our firefighters... And having lost my entire place to fire in Alaska, I sincerely hope you guys still have something when you go back. But you all have each other. Please keep us updated.

Traded emails with Dr. Mike yesterday and he said you were well prepared for a speedy exit. So glad you were prepared and sorry you had to put your plans in action. Will be praying for all those affected by wildfires.
