SFist & SF Appeal have up-to-the minute coverage of all the news and things we can do to help with the fire. Like, for instance, blood banks are at capacity but there will be more need in the upcoming days. It’s good to give blood, anyway BE A GOOD PERSON. Plus, free juice!
Anyway, we just heard word that Petco in San Bruno is providing shelter for displaced pets. If anyone knows of any other emergency animal services in the area, please let us know. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this stupid terrible tragedy.
UPDATE (12:14 pm)
The Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA (PHS/SPCA) is prepared to offer temporary sheltering, pet food and supplies for any pets belonging to residents displaced from their homes following this evening’s gas explosion in San Bruno.

Called Peninsula Humane Society re: donations or help for the pets in the San Bruno fire, and they could use donations of cat and dog food, collars and leashes and treats in sealed bags.
