USA: Californian shelters hosts dozens of pets as Oak fires continue ravaging state

United States, Mariposa
July 31, 2022 at 07:50 GMT +00:00 · Published

The Central Californian Animal Disaster Team spoke at one of their shelters in Mariposa on Friday regarding their efforts to host and protect pets that have been impacted by the ongoing wildfires.

Several dogs and cats, once living in a normal home, were seen inside cages as their houses were burned from the wildfires. The staff received several bags of animal food before sorting them and preparing them for the animals.

Leslie Harris, the shelter manager, remarked that "What we do is we aide the people that are being evacuated from areas that have high wildfires, or actually, who have been required to move. What we do is we assist in taking care of them, feed them, walk them, we clean their cages, we do a multitude of things. Not only do we take care of their animals, but we also take care of their human owners because during this part of the season, when there's high wildfires like this, and people are being evacuated, it is very stressful, not only for them, but for the animals."
