OROVILLE, Calif. - At the North Valley Animal Disaster Group, animals are being brought back to safety and are hoping to be reunited with their owners.

“We have all of the unclaimed animals," said volunteer, Megan Soulsby. "The cats and the dogs here right now. We are taking care of owned animals, dogs, and cats also at this shelter."

Volunteers said the animals are in great hands and are getting plenty of food, water, and special treats.

“Canned food and dry food every day," said Soulsby. "We make sure everybody eats. They get walks several times a day. We build them enrichment toys. They get treats. We water them probably four or five times a day of course. “

“We have some paper bags that have some goodies in it," said volunteer, Michelle Lombas. "It might be a little peanut butter, it might be a little pepperoni, a little bit of kibble, so we just drop it in and they get excited about tearing it open and investigating it. So, it kind of keeps them busy.”

Soulsby said that they are currently separating the animals between those who are still looking for their families, from those who have already been identified.

“We thought it would be easier if we kept all the unclaimed animals together, so the cats all have their own section of unclaimed and their own section of owned," said Soulsby. "Then we have some dogs in medical and some pregnant dogs so we have a separate space for them.”

Soulsby said there is a process for reuniting pets with their owners, that starts by visiting their website. 

“If you think that one of the pets is yours, you would take the ID number down, and bring in some information about your pet if you have a photo," said Soulsby. "We need a driver's license and an address of where you were located and then we can try and reunite you with your pet.”
