Wildfires Threaten Thousands of Animals Throughout Southern California
American Humane Responds!
News from the scene
American Humane's National Responders are currently assisting the San Diego Humane Society in assessing animal needs in Ramona, California, where a recent flare-up caused further emergency evacuations. Currently more than 1,000 horses in Del Mar, Ramona, and Lakeside are threatened by encroaching fires, and will require emergency evacuation if the fires continue in their current path.
A team effort
Yesterday, American Humane National Responders continued to assist animal victims of the Cedar Fire in San Diego. Working with the San Diego Police Mounted Patrol, National Responders provided care for horses evacuated from burn areas. American Humane's team joined with disaster response teams from the Humane Society of the United States and the Houston SPCA to establish an intake system allowing owners to reclaim their horses after the evacuations were over.
American Humane has also dispatched a team of National Responders to San Bernardino to report to the Emergency Operations Center for Animals Control. The National Responder team leader will be meeting with Lt. Kane of the San Bernadino Animal Control to do a needs assessment.
Outpouring of support
While local groups have done an outstanding job of coordinating relief efforts, the continuing rage of the fires are starting to take their toll on rescue personnel. Support from organizations like American Humane provides needed relief to rescuers who have been working around the clock.
Monday, American Humane began our response to the Cedar Fire by dispatching our Red Star Emergency Services at the request of the San Diego Humane Society and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). Read more.
As Red Star helps local forces rescue these defenseless animals, American Humane is asking Southern California residents who are forced to evacuate to make sure their animals are safe. Click here for precautions to take to avoid leaving livestock stranded and alone during a disaster.
We need your help
America Humane is dangerously close to depleting our emergency response funds. We need to add $50,000 back to our resources -- an amount that is continually growing as the needs in California expand. Contributions can be made online or by calling (866) 242-1877.
