A few posts found on FB --


Sydelle Brand Bunin Good they're rescuing them. They say they need as many crates as people can bring. The Pet Smart in the area cleared their ENTIRE inventory to help!! I will always shop there for sure - though I try to anyway, this makes an even better reason.

(GOOD for Petsmart!! Left thumb up )


Cindy Gibson-Carpenter The first thing I thought of when I heard about the threat to Pigeon Forge were all the Bald Eagles at Dollywood. Hoping and praying for the rains to continue and for everyone to remain safe, including our feathered friends.

Franklin and Independence this morning. Looks to me like their eyes are a bit irritated from the smoke perhaps. (Thank you Rose!!)

American Eagle Foundation- 8 hours ago


As most of you already know, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge Tennessee are being threatened by large forest fires. We've already heard several reports of much of historic Gatlinburg already burning down. Tonight around 8 PM, with the fire only miles away and a mandatory people evacuation in place, the AEF staff began conducting an emergency bird evacuation, something we have never had to do before. Our AEF first responders wasted no time rushing from their homes to our headquarters and loading somewhere around 50-60 birds into travel kennels and into every available vehicle. It wasn't graceful, but we did our best to retrieve every bird and then load about 40-50 pounds of raptor food along with. These birds are now resting safely in individual kennels at several AEF staff member homes 10+ miles away from the fires. Al Cecere went to Dollywood to check on our Eagle Mountain Sanctuary Eagles...unfortunately, in the dark, with ashy hazy air, steep leafy hillsides, and other staff being turned away by police while they trying to bring extra travel kennels onto the Dollywood park, we were unable to catch up and rescue these eagles tonight. As of now they are safe and hanging out in their aviaries, albeit the air quality is not optimal. Eagle Mountain Sanctuary houses one of the largest collections of non-releasable Bald Eagles in the world. Several fire trucks and first responders are protecting Dollywood and we hope to receive reports in the morning from Dollywood security as to whether it's safe to come evacuate them. We are hoping and praying for rain to come save our sweet home in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. We hope and pray that every person has made it out of the danger zones. We will keep you updated.
