Wildfires have been ravaging the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Montana and have damaged about 18,000 acres of land.
It is estimated that about 1,200 horses and cattle are without much feed, if any at all.
The land will obviously take months to recover from the fire, but feed will be even more scarce as new babies are born.
This is where the ASPCA stepped in with a generous donation of $15,000.
"We are happy to come to the aid of the livestock impacted by these destructive fires.
These funds will be used to purchase much needed hay and feed for horses and cattle impacted by the devastating fires that destroyed buildings, uprooted residents and negatively impacted the food source for more than a thousand head of livestock.
Our organization is incredibly grateful to the ASPCA for its immediate and generous response to this crisis.
It’s a huge boost to our ability to help the Blackfeet Tribe and their animals during this difficult time."
If it weren't for organizations like the ASPCA, literally hundreds of animals could have died for no reason.
Way to go, ASPCA!
