Resources for Families Impacted by Fires in Sonoma County


How We are Helping Pets & Families

The Sacramento SPCA is working with shelters in affected areas to transport adoptable animals into safe housing in Sacramento.  This will make room for shelters closer to affected areas to help families who need temporary housing for their cherished pets.  

We are also offering free vaccinations, microchips and flea/tick prevention for pets of displaced families to protect their animals during their stay in Sacramento and make temporary housing more accessible. Impacted families can bring their pets and proof of residence (in evacuation zones in or around Sonoma County) to our shelter location below during the following business hours:

Sacramento SPCA

Sacramento, CA 95828

Monday & Tuesday from 11am – 3pm (in the Adoption Center)

VCA Animal Hospitals is offering free boarding assistance at hospitals throughout California for pets that have been displaced by wildfires across the state. Boarding assistance is offered on a space-available basis to victims of the wildfires at all California hospitals.

Due to the extent of the evacuation orders and impacts, boarding availability may be limited at some VCA facilities. Families are strongly encouraged to call ahead and confirm that space is available.
