Butte County asks evacuees to resume care of animals sheltering in place

Butte County residents who were evacuated from the Camp Fire are being asked to resume care of animals that sheltered in place.

Animal rescue groups have been caring for the animals thus far, but in light of recent evacuation orders being lifted they are asking owners returning to their properties to assume care of the animals.

Owners returning to animals that sheltered in place will receive a detailed account of the care the animals received in the owner's absence.

Animal food will also be provided at feed drop-off locations in the fire-affected areas until December 22.

Owners can receive animal supplies and food while supplies last at the Animal Feed Donation Center at 109 Table Mountain Boulevard in Oroville open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

Anyone who will not be staying in their homes or leaving the area needs to take their animals with them. The emergency animal shelters are tentatively closing on January 4.
