Hundreds of furry critter's lives will be saved one-day thanks to these generous volunteers.
The North Valley Animal Disaster group met with new volunteers for training at Butte College, Saturday.
Volunteers came from counties all over the North State, including Napa, Sonoma, Glenn, and Plumas.
This is a non-profit organization that activates at the request of Cal Fire and Butte County Public Health animal control.
During an evacuation of people, volunteers help evacuate the animals.
Animals such as horses, dogs, cats, rabbits and chickens are collected and housed in temporary shelters.
The non-profit relies heavily on donations and all the volunteer help it can get.
“It’s been a hellacious year between floods and fires and unfortunately as we look to the future, there's no reason to believe on the fireside that anything is going to change,” said Kate Leyden, a volunteer for the group.
