Shelter Animals Displaced By California’s Wildfires Are In Desperate Need Of Safe Homes

The state of California is currently on fire in several locations. As a result, residents are having to deal with blackouts and evacuations. The wildfires are a result of high winds – and they’ve already ravaged hundreds of acres of land, destroyed dozens of structures, and injured at least two firefighters. Of course, the human residents aren’t the state’s only affected victims. As reported by ABC 10, displaced cats and dogs rescued from the blaze are desperately in need of safety and homes.

Over the weekend, the Kincade Fire blazed through Sonoma County located in northern California. As a result, the local animal shelters had to evacuate. The Sacramento Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) stepped in and took in the 20 dogs and 22 cats who were in need of shelter. Now, the SPCA is asking people to adopt pets.

“These animals were all in [the Humane Society of Sonoma County’s] care or already available for adoption prior to the fires, so there is no risk these animals were originally displaced by the fires,” the Sacramento SPCA posted to a Facebook post.

The pets looking for homes range in age, from little kittens to a 19-year-old cattle dog mix named Ace. The SPCA will be updating more information on their website about each animal, they’re just waiting for all of them to receive their medical check-ups. For now, you can visit the nonprofit’s adoption page and see what information is there.

Adopting vulnerable pets rescued from natural disasters is always one way of helping a community deal with the aftermath. However, the animals in California aren’t the only ones needing loving forever homes.
