We are providing support to people and pets affected by the fires surrounding our community in three important ways.
- We assisted our partners at Washoe County Regional Animal Services with staffing the Reno-Sparks Convention Center evacuation site they managed, by providing donated pet food and supplies, staff and volunteers to help care for animals who have been displaced by the fires.
- We managed the Fuji Park evacuation site in Carson City which opened when the Caldor fire evacuations began. We provided care for cats, dogs and small animals in need that were displaced by by the fires. At this time we are excited to be reuniting pets with their families as evacuation orders are being lifted.
- We are transporting all items donated to both our Reno and Carson City Shelters from 8.30 – 9.5 to various evacuation sites and animal shelters that are caring for pets who have been displaced by the fires.
Donate to the People & Pets Displaced by the Fires
Our team is working hard to provide care to pets in need who have been displaced by the terrible fires surrounding our community. Your donations are greatly appreciated and essential to helping us continue this life-saving care. The best way to help us continue our life-saving efforts helping the people and pets displaced by the fires is to make a monetary donation: https://nevadahumanesociety.org/donate-online/
These donations ensure that we can:
- Continue our life-saving efforts providing 24-hour care to the animals at our Fuji Park evacuation site in Carson City.
- Transport the donations that have been dropped off at our Reno and Carson City Shelters to other evacuation centers and animal shelters caring for pets displaced by the fires.
Please help us to spread the word to people in our community that monetary donations are needed to help pets in need who have been displaced because of these terrible fires.
