We have email capability again and a new cell phone provider with cell phone connectivity! The cooler temperatures and rain slowed the fire considerably. The last two days have brought clear skies over Rover's Ranch. We are grateful to be able to help with evacuee and firefighter dogs, and are also happy to have regular customers coming for a visit.
This has been a very frightening week for all of us in the Methow Valley. Firefighters are continuing to battle the fire and too many valley residents have been displaced or have lost their homes. We offer our support and care.
We also offer our extreme gratitude to the many firefighters, Red Cross, and innumerable volunteers.
ROVER'S RANCH is OPEN. We are on the other side of the river from the burned areas with a contained line between us. WE have power (generator) and air conditioning. WE DO NOT HAVE EMAIL capability and phones only work if we drive to the high school. BUT WE ARE CHECKING PHONE MESSAGES and getting back as soon as we can. You can reach us at 509-341-4120.
Please be safe and know that we are here for you and your dogs. Patrick and Kathryn
