BENEFITING: The SPCA for Monterey County
December 18, 2013
The SPCA for Monterey County is currently responding to the fire in Big Sur.
So far, Humane Investigation Officers and Animal Care staff have helped to safely evacuate 63 animals (5 llamas, 2 alpacas, 20 goats and 6 sheep have been relocated and 30 chickens are currently sheltered at our barn).
As we have done historically in disasters, we are prepared to set up an emergency animal shelter if needed in partnership with the American Red Cross.
To learn more about our ongoing rescue efforts, visit our website.
We currently estimate the costs of our disaster efforts for the duration of the fire to exceed $15,000. Donations from very good friends like you allow the SPCA to fully and effectively respond to disasters like this—to go behind fire lines to rescue animals from harm’s way, to provide shelter for animals when owners cannot, to provide pet food and supplies for animals in need, and to direct owners to pet friendly temporary housing.
The SPCA is a private nonprofit agency that does not receive any funding from national organizations, or from state or local governments. The support of generous individuals like you make it possible for us to respond to emergencies that require the specialized rescue capabilities for which The SPCA trains and prepares continually.
