Marshall Fire Support: Lexie Fun is currently raising funds to support direct medical needs for pets affected by the Marshall fires. We are organizing volunteer events to help those affected or displaced by the fires. Food and supply donations are being accepted by Harmony Veterinary Center at 14729 W 87th Parkway in Arvada, their staff will take donation to other local charities and shelters in need. Lexie Fund volunteers will be busy helping with the humanitarian efforts needed to support the communities of Superior and Louisville. Other ways to help.
- Have Services or Skills to Help? The Boulder Office of Emergency Management has a form on their website for donations.
- Looking to volunteer? Authorities are directing interested volunteers to sign up on Colorado Responds.
- Looking to give a financial donation? Monetary funds can be donated to the Red Cross or to the Community Foundation.
- Have extra household goods to donate? Authorities are directing household goods donations to local non-profit thrift stores.
- Interested in opening your home to displaced residents? Sign up to be a vetted host at Airbnb.com and you will be alerted through the Airbnb Open Homes Program if needed.
The Lexie Fund works with several organizations to help support the human-animal bond as well as pets and people in our local community. We invite you to enjoy any of the events listed, knowing that many are on-hold at this time due to COVID-19. From community fundraisers and adoption opportunities to pet health and training events, we hope to see this list grow again once the pandemic is behind us.
The Evergreen Animal Protective League is a great no kill shelters in Colorado that help pets in need every day. They are always hosting an adoption event someplace in the state and we encourage you to follow their links for the most up-to-date information.

Harmony Veterinary Center hosts multiple spay and neuter clinics each year for pets in need, and volunteers are needed to spend time with our patients pre- and post-op. If interested, please contact us at 303-432-8551 and ask to speak with Julia McPeek.
