Thanks to Kat 5 for barking in this update on the rescue needs for animals displaced by the recent firestorms.
KAT 5 Animal Rescue has been monitoring the animal rescue needs in California. We are told that we are not needed on the ground at this time. Supplies and placement are needed. KAT 5 will update the supply needs and volunteer needs as information becomes available.
Residents have largely evacuated with their pets. Local animal groups and authorities are well organized.
KAT 5 has compiled a list of temporary placements for animals of every species. Please contact KAT 5 for this information or any form of assistance.
