Healing Furry Patients After the Carr Fire

Healing Furry Patients After the Carr Fire

Posted: Aug 22, 2018 6:14 PM

REDDING, Calif - More than a dozen cats have come into the haven humane facility in Redding over the last few weeks.

Some had small burns on their paws, while others had much more severe burns all over their bodies.

"On average it's taking about three weeks to get them healed from the burns," said haven humane society chief medical officer Cyanna Howden

In fact, doctors have been working tirelessly to nurse each one of these cats back to health and reunite them with their families.

"We have had a few that have found their owners so that's kind of the best news, as far as we're concerned because they get to go home," said Howden.

One of the stories many people have been following is the one surrounding "Small Fry".


The three-month-old kitten was one of the first animals treated at haven humane after the Carr Fire.

She came in with severe burns to her ears, paws, and nose.

"Severely burned at of all of them that we have seen so far, so we still have her here with us going on week four of her treatment. Still, she has a lot of healing to do. But she's a trooper," said Howden.

But in order to care for each one of these furry patients it takes a lot of love, time, and money.

So employees with Haven Human Society are now asking for the public's help in continuing their success in healing and reuniting each of these furry family members.

“Right now I would say monetary donations would be the biggest thing because it is expensive to care for them. The care is so long term you know definitely helps every little bit helps," Howden.

A disturbance moved over northern California and the rest of the Pacific Northwest this afternoon. It brought more gusty wind like yesterday, and cooler air, but only isolated rain showers. It will be much quieter this weekend with a late summer warmup.
