OROVILLE, Calif. - More than 70 National Guard soldiers were sent out Sunday to various areas in Butte County, to help animals in need.


They met up with the North Valley Animal Disaster Group in Oroville – there soldiers took food to animals at the address they were assigned to.


They were hauling hay, carrying water and going to places like Concow, Paradise and Magalia.


It’s a contribution that one lieutenant is glad to be a part of.


“This is another example where our soldiers are contributing back to the community, to get out there and the need is to get to those animals that haven’t been fed for days,” said Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Shiroma.


The North Valley Animal Disaster Group says a lot of shelters around the North State are full.
