MAGALIA, Calif. - There are hundreds of animals being cared for by the North Valley Animal Disaster Group. And Action News Now got an exclusive tour of how that's done.
The tour took our reporter to lower Magalia, where they sheltered some goats.
The group also leaves food and water if they see an animal around.
The group says they've been hearing rumors on social media saying that those animals are not being taken care of during the Camp Fire disaster.
But now the group is speaking out.
“Butte County Animal Control and the North Valley Animal Disaster Group and other groups are all working hard to get up behind the fire lines. We feed and water all the animals we can and also look for animals that need rescuing,” said Norm Rosene, of NVADG.
Adding that “I think there’s a lot of people spreading misinformation. Everything is being taken care of,” Rosene said.
They also say it’s best to leave the aid to the professionals.
And if you want to help out they're always accepting donations.
