King Fire Updates and Information:
- Repopulation of Evacuated Animals:
Animal Services has received several calls regarding the return of evacuated animals currently in the care of Animal Services. Animal Services is requesting that residents whose animals were evacuated to one of the shelters during the King Fire, work with family, friends, and neighbors to assist with the return of their animals. If residents are unable to secure transportation for their animals from our care back to their homes, officers may be able to assist as they are available. We want to thank residents for their patience while we continue to care for animals in the evacuated areas.
- For assistance with after-hours animal emergencies, please call the on-call Animal Services Officer via the Sheriff's Office at (530) 621-6600.
- In respect of Fire Camp at the Fairgrounds, we are asking owners to please contact Animal Services during normal business hours at (530) 621-5795, rather than going directly to the Fairgrounds to visit the animals.
- Volunteers - thank you for the overwhelming support from community members willing to volunteer and assist with the animals. At this time, we have the necessary staff and volunteers.
- At this time, Animal Services has sufficient supplies to take care of the animals. Thank you!!
