PAHS donates to animals harmed by wildfires

The Palo Alto Humane Society donated $1,000 to two organizations rescuing and caring for animals affected by the Camp Fire in Butte County.

North Valley Animal Disaster Group and the Center for Animal Protection & Education are helping the many animals that have sustained burns, are suffering from smoke inhalation and/or require emergency medical care.

According to Humane Society representatives, many animals have been separated from their owners and are in the care of a shelter or are wandering lost and in need of help. Wild animals are also suffering. Rescue and treatment needs will continue for some time.

As part of the Palo Alto Humane Society’s Creating Compassionate Communities initiatives, it strives to alleviate the suffering of animals through its advocacy, intervention and education programs. The organization has served the communities of the mid-Peninsula since 1908.

Donations to the rescue organizations may be made through the Palo Alto Humane Society at (designate donations for “Camp Fire Rescue”) or directly to North Valley Animal Disaster Group at or the Center for Animal Protection & Education at
