At 8am, Saturday November 10th, Sacramento CERT was providing training on Disaster Animal Sheltering to citizens of Crescent City and Oregon. By 4pm, the team was headed back to Sacramento to deploy to the Camp Fire in Chico on Sunday.
This week, Sacramento CERT with the assistance of other regional CERT programs is working at the largest animal shelter in the region with over 1,600 animals at one point, and an estimated 200-400 more expected arrivals daily.
In one day, CERT members assisted over 2,000 residents looking to reunite with their animals lost in the fire.
We are also supporting rescue efforts by transferring animals to shelters and to higher medical care, transporting 8 critically injured felines to UCD Vet Med center just last night.
Sacramento CERT working with North Valley Animal Disaster Group will be concentrating our efforts on transporting stray and injured animals to shelters and medical care in the region. We desperately need funds for fuel to allow our volunteers to continue to provide transport services.
