In a heartfelt post on their Facebook page, the care shelter thanked the Oscar winner for her generosity and explained how her donation will help in the wildfire relief efforts. “The Humane Society of Ventura County was deeply humbled today by a $100,000 donation from Sandra Bullock and family,” the post reads. “Our efforts for rescuing and caring for evacuated animals from the Hill and Woolsey fires had caught her attention and her team reached out to the shelter to show their support.”
“Sandra Bullock and her family have reached out to other nonprofit organizations both during this incident and in the past,” the post continues. “However, this time she wanted to contribute to those on the frontline rescuing animals in peril and hope others will choose to do the same.”
The devastating fires have forced numerous California residents to evacuate their homes, with some losing their houses altogether.
Late Sunday night, Miley Cyrus took to social media to reveal that she and Liam Hemsworth have lost their Malibu home to the wildfires. But she noted that Hemsworth and her animals made it out safely, while others have not been as fortunate.
Cyrus also shared links to Airbnb, the California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund, the California Fire Foundation, Direct Relief, the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s Fire Relief Fund, the Red Cross and the United Way’s Disaster Relief Fund, encouraging her followers to help support relief efforts.
