BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Butte County Animal Control has announced a transition plan and target date for closure of temporary animal shelters set up during the Camp Fire.

The target date is Friday, Jan. 4. 

In an effort to make this an easy transition for evacuees of the Camp Fire still looking to be reunited with pets, reunification specialists will be available to assist animal owners in finding long-term options such as fostering networks and private boarding facilities. 

Reunification Options

A hotline has been set up for animals owners to use to discuss the long-term options. 

Shelter Hotline and Reunification Specialists: (530) 895-0000

For more information on the hotline, CLICK HERE

Beginning on Dec. 18, animals without identified owners will be micro-chipped and transferred to smaller animal shelters where they can receive more individual attention and housed for at least an additional 30 days. 

These animals are listed on the NVADG Lost Animals website. For more information, CLICK HERE

Additionally, between now and January 4th, reunification teams will meet with shelter evacuees at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds to locate people who may have animals at the shelter.

Picking up Animals From the Shelter

Animal owners need to bring a photo ID and the pink copy of the animal intake form. 

If you have misplaced the pink intake form, you may still pick-up your animal. Your photo ID will need to be verified with the animal intake form on file.
