The Los Angeles Animal Care Foundation is providing equipment, supplies and training to first responders who rescue animals. The monetary donations they receive go towards food, shelter, veterinary care and the search efforts of reuniting the pets with their owners.
The Camarillo Animal Shelter has provided shelter to more than 400 animals during the fire. At the shelter, which has almost doubled its population due to the fires, even uses the deputy director’s office to temporarily shelter kennelled pets displaced by the fire. Their number one priority is saving the animals.
