ELLENSBURG, WA-- The animals are doing really well as the Snag Canyon Fire burns just north of Ellensburg. It all started with only four horses at the shelter, but someone just dropped off 17 alpacas while fire crews battle the snag canyon flames.


People who are working at the animal shelter said the community is really coming together to help out with donating food, water and care to the animals.

Doctor Naysa Poshusta said it is great to see the community in Ellensburg step up to help out their four-legged friends.

"When you talk about a community like Ellensburg, people are really invested in their animals and a lot of people care deeply not just as you can see about their dogs and cats, but also their animals like alpacas, sheep, especially horses. we've got four horses here now so providing for that need is really important I think," Dr. Poshusta said.

She also said they will stay at the animals shelter until there is not more need for them.

Luckily the animals are not having a hard time with smoke or poor air quality.  If that does become an issue, they will ask for additional support from local vets to get the all the animals' health back on track.
