1,635 animals are being housed at four different shelters following the Camp Fire in Butte County and officials are encouraging owners to pick up their animals once they’re allowed access back to their homes or property.

Officials said if your home has been destroyed by the Camp Fire, your animals will need a place to go.

If you are unable to care for them, check with friends or family who may be available to foster them while you start the recovery and rebuilding process.

Officials added if that is not an option, you’re encouraged to review this list of available boarding facilities in Butte County.

When picking up your animals, owners need to bring a photo ID and the pink copy of the animal intake form. If the pink intake form has been misplaced, you may still pick-up your animals with a photo ID to verify you have an animal intake form on file.

These are the four locations currently housing animals:

  • Old County Hospital located at 22279 Del Oro and Mono in Oroville
  • Chico Municipal Airport, located at 150 Airpark Blvd in Chico
  • Humane Society of the United States, located at 1210 Richvale Highway in Richvale
  • Butte County Fairgrounds, located at 199 E. Hazel Street in Gridley
