Bark's 5th Avenue is hosting an emergency food and supply drive Saturday for pets injured or displaced in the West explosion.
"Given the widespread impact and the high volume of people who appear to be displaced by the explosion, we knew that this would have a direct effect on family pets and animals in the area," Bark's owner Pennie Mahon stated in a release. "Many times, animals are pushed aside and forgotten during these situations, and we want to help the people and animals of West, Texas, during this difficult time."
(Editor's Note: We know some people in West and they've been talking about how the blast, and subsequent earthshaking, caused cattle to stampede in confusion. But we're pretty sure they eventually settled down and continued on with their busy life of chewing grass.)
