CHICO, Calif. - The Chico Municipal Airport is still housing more than 700 animals that were displaced during the Camp Fire.

Despite the Thanksgiving holiday, volunteers continued to care for these animals until its safe for them to return home. 

All shelters will eventually be consolidated at a warehouse in Richvale run by the Humane Society of the United States. 

Butte County Public Health is asking everyone to pick up their animals as soon as it's safe to return home. 

The shelter said that there is no further need for donations. Larger animals are still being housed at the Butte County Fairgrounds in Gridley.
