It breaks our hearts to see the devastation the California fires have had on the whole ecosystem, our neighbors and also their pets.
As a San Francisco-based company, we are no strangers to fires in California. Southern and Northern California are currently experiencing another episode and our local areas in particularly Sonoma County and Napa County hit close to home.
People often forget the impact that these fires have on pets and wildlife. The Kincade Fire has caused the Humane Society of Sonoma County to evacuate many cats and dogs with the help of the Sacramento Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Sacramento SPCA).
In 2019 according to the Sacramento SPCA so far over 530 total animals have been transferred to the Sacramento SPCA from overburdened shelters or shelters in crisis.
Another compassionate organization called VCA Animal Hospital, which have over 160 clinics across California, are offering free boarding for animals affected. Space is limited so owners are asked to call in advance.
Our beloved partners Silicon Valley Pet Event is also taking part in helping rescue and evacuate pets from the affected areas.
There is a variety of organizations collecting donations – you can go to californiavolunteers.ca.gov to learn more.
