Yesterday we heard of the tragic event of the house on Hercules Avenue exploding, taking 2 lives and injuring 3 others. 2 dogs were also injured, and now need help from the community.

Sick dog napping


After the home explosion two dogs were rushed to Animal Control for burn wounds and smoke inhalation.  The Spirit Medical fund now needs your help. If you aren't sure what the Spirit Medical Fund is,  It was set up to help with needed medical care for stray, homeless and abandoned animals that arrive at Evansville-Vanderburgh Animal Care & Control.

Just today Evansville 41 shared an  update from Missy Mosby saying:

Friends.....we need your help. As you know, there was a terrible explosion at a house in Evansville yesterday where two lives were taken, 2 adults are in the hospital & 1 child was flown to Riley. EACC also took in 2 dogs that are being treated for burns & smoke inhalation. Spirit Medical fund is in desperate need of money to help take care of these two precious dogs. Please help us raise some money to help pay the vet bills for these two precious babies. You can stop by EACC or drop off your check at my office at 4841 E Virginia Street! Please make check payable to Spirit Medical Fund. Prayers to every one involved & thank you to every one for your support! Please share!

This story is tragic all the way around. My heart hurts for those who lost their lives, and I am pulling for the ones in the hospitals fighting for theirs, and also for these two pups.

I'll keep you updated with any further information.
