Recovery from the Valley Fire in Lake County, Part 2



Johanna “Wildoak” hosted part 2 of her series about recovery from the Valley Fire. Her goal for this series is primarily to share information that can help our neighbors in Lake County in their recovery. At the same time, she would also like us all to be well prepared for future disasters, be they wildfires, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, etc. You can listen to part 1 of this series here: Part 1

The focus of part 2 of this series is animal rescue. During the Valley fire in Lake County, many veterinarians, animal rescue organizations, other organizations and volunteers came forward to rescue, feed, water and house animals that were evacuated and in shelters or animals that were left behind during evacuations or injured by the fire. During this program, Johanna talks with some of these amazing people who have done and are doing so much to help animals. You can read much more at the links provided in the Resource List below. Here are just some of the ways they and many others are helping animals impacted by the Valley fire and other recent wildfires and emergencies:

  • They risked their own safety and lives to help animals in need by going into the fire evacuation areas and rescuing dogs, cats, horses and livestock. 
  • The are working to reunite animals that had to be left behind during evacuations with their owners. 
  • They are treating injured animals at no cost;
  • They are raising funds and distributing materials to house, feed and care for animals;
  • They are providing housing for and are fostering pets, horses and livestock;
  • They are helping to find new homes for the many animals who can no longer be cared for because their owners lost their homes and possibly their livelihoods.

  • Julie Solomon Atwood with HALTER, Horse and Livestock Team Emergency Rescue, an organization that is “Leading Rural Residents to Safety & Readiness”.
