San Diego Fire Disaster Response.  Working together with Muttshack Animal Rescue, Sunshine Dogstar, and Animal House, Denkai rescued 63 dogs from the California disaster zone.  Veterinarians from Fort Collins Animal Hospital and The Housecall Vet donated $20,000 in veterinary care to these animals.  Medical conditions included;  
  • Paco, an old Chihuahua with a heart murmur
  • Don Carlito, an 8 month old Chihuahua with a hernia in which small intestines and one testicle had descended into his upper thigh area.
  • Daisy, a 1 year old female rottweiler, birthed her puppies one week after arrival to safety from the San Diego fires
