HAPPY CAMP, Calif. — Volunteers with a nonprofit program in Siskiyou County have been working to house and rescue cats displaced by the Slater Fire.
The shelter in Yreka is housing rescued cats and kittens as well as those whose owners needed a place to keep their pets while evacuating.
SNIP of Siskiyou County said several injured cats and kittens are getting veterinary help, but getting a veterinarian to respond to the area was a challenge.
"It’s been a few long days for the SNIP volunteers at the county slater fire shelter for cats," the nonprofit said via its Facebook page. "It took several days and many phone calls to find a vet who would come to help. Can’t thank Dr Shaw with The Happy Pet Vet from Klamath Falls. She had to take one of the cats with her to care at the facility, she was in pretty bad shape. Big thanks to the community for all your support and donations."
