BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - There are still many animals displaced by the Camp Fire.

Action News Now reporter Christina Vitale visited the Paradise Animal Shelter to get an understanding of how various volunteer groups are interfering with the shelters reunification process.

Currently, there are 60 cats and 8 dogs at the Paradise Animal Shelter. 

Jen Robbins with Paradise Animal Control said outside volunteer groups are interfering with their reunification process.

She said that rogue groups are trapping animals and taking them out of the county.

"The problem is, they're not reporting them to our local agency where we are supposed to, by California State law, scan them for a microchip and post them as a found animal so that we can put them through the proper channels to reunite them with their owners," Robbins said. 

Robbins said because these animals are leaving the community and ending up in various locations, it prolongs being able to match owners with their pets.

She said the Paradise Animal Control is trying to contact these groups and ask them to work through their agency so that the animals can be properly reported.

Robbins wanted to reiterate that the Paradise Animal Shelter is a no-kill shelter. Any animal that has been brought in since the Camp Fire has either been reunited with their owner, adopted or is still here.
