Help for Shelters Housing Animals Evacuated in California WildfiresPosted by April Nockleby, ALDF's Online Content Manager on June 25, 2008
Animal shelters and other animal protection organizations may gain
temporary custody of animals who have been rescued and evacuated from
the fires sweeping through California.
Shelters without the resources to house large numbers of animals can
adapt and use foster care forms developed by the Animal Legal Defense
Fund’s Criminal Justice Program as part of a foster care program to
establish temporary foster homes for the animals.
