On Dec. 30th, 2021, the most destructive fire in Colorado history, the Marshall Fire, burned through more than 6,000 acres of land in less than 24 hours destroying 1,084 homes and residential structures in Boulder County. One human has been reported dead and one still missing. While many domestic animals who were displaced by the fires have been reunited with their families, many others including wildlife have died. If you are affected by these fires, or if you wish to help in the relief efforts, please find some resources and volunteer links here.
