OROVILLE, Calif. -  The North Valley animal disaster group large animal shelter is taking in livestock to help those who had to evacuate. 

“We take in pretty much anything that is not a domestic animal," said volunteer, Lori Grande. "We will care for them, get them to vet treatment if needed if they have any special needs, we will take care of that regarding feeding, things like that. The owners have enough to worry about so we don’t want them to have anything to worry about, so we take care of that for them.”

Volunteers tell me they currently have over 270 animals at the shelter, but also tell me they know of at least 30 animals that still haven’t been found or claimed.

“We have a lot of loose animals running around out there," said Grande. "People have let their animals loose, so we are picking up a lot of loose animals, so if you are missing your animal and you go to your house and they are not there, please call the 895-0000 number. We have some animals here that are strays that we mark as strays that aren’t claimed yet.”

Grande said that though these are very emotional times she is thankful to be able to care for these animals

“I’ve been doing this for 11 years," said Grande. "It is very hard for volunteers to stay home and not help, so this is everything to us. Everybody that has animals knows how much you just want to help, so the fact that we can be out here helping people during their worst times is wonderful.”

To donate to help care for the animals staying at the Camelot Equestrian Park, people can send monetary donations to the animal shelter HERE.
