Animals Evacuated From California Wildfires

There’s been an outpouring of help for animals from horses and cows to cats and puppies evacuated from the path of the wildfires in Northern California. The animals are staying at the fairgrounds in Calistoga, where veterinarians are on hand and so many supplies have been donated that organizers are having trouble dealing with the volume of it. “There is everything from water to rakes, to horse treats [and] dog food,” said Joy Fleming, who evacuated her family, along with her three horses, from Middletown. The wildfires have left at least one person dead and destroyed hundreds of homes. They've consumed more than 95 square miles, and firefighters are struggling to contain them. A veterinarian at the fairgrounds said the animals were stressed but that they’ve been fortunate to have “a lot of resources.” — Read it at People Pets
