In addition to the support of the community to find their dogs, German’s Villa at 3330 Liberty Ave., Vermilion, started accepting donations Thursday morning immediately following the explosion. People donated things like toiletries, shoes and bedding for the family.

German’s Villa will continue to accept items for as long as needed. Dropoff times are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to noon Saturday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
