UPDATE Nov. 16, 2 p.m. | California wildfires: As of 7 a.m. PST Friday, November 16, our Animal Rescue Team is on the ground in Butte County to assist those impacted by the raging wildfires. The Humane Society of the United States is devoted to providing local shelter support for displaced, evacuated and rescued animals—our highly skilled Animal Rescue Volunteers will provide expert and loving care to the animals in need.
We will also be providing grants to local organizations, including Ventura County Animal Services, Ruff Valley Animal Refuge, West Valley Animal Shelter and the Red Cross for supplies for evacuated pets and horses, as well as pets found without their owners.
Our Emergency Animal Rescue Fund exists to help in these situations. Your support is needed to help as this devastation continues to ravage California or wherever animals are in crisis.
We never know when disasters will strike or when animals may be in need of urgent rescue, but we know we must be ready. Your support makes our preparedness, rescue, care and relief work possible.
From moving animals out of harm’s way before a hurricane, to rescuing the victims of a case of extreme cruelty, to supplying emergency funding to a local shelter for temporary air conditioners, to providing 40 tons of hay to feed horses left hungry by wildfires, to search, rescue, transport and emergency sheltering efforts after tragic storms—we're only able to offer relief for animals because of supporters like you.
Please support rescue and relief efforts by donating to our Emergency Animal Rescue Fund using our secure form. Your gift today will ensure that our team can continue to answer the call during times of emergency wherever and whenever animals need us. (Find out more about how your donation will be used.) Thank you for your contribution to these lifesaving efforts.
