Animal fire refugees need help

Three shelters have been set up in Butte County for domestic animals rescued from the Butte Lightening Complex fires.

Volunteers are needed through at least July 25 to help exercise cats, dogs and large animals. They would be sworn in as disaster relief workers for the county office of emergency services and be insured while working.

Shelter centers are in Chico and Oroville. Local churches and the American Red Cross are aiding relief workers with shelter and food. Much physical work is needed, but volunteers also can help with office tasks and basic animal attention.

Those interested can call Caring Choices at (530) 899-3873.
