2017 SCFA Animal Evacuation Center

$19,855 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 174 people in 6 months
The Northern California wildfires not only displaced people, but animals too.  The Solano County Fairgrounds opened on October 9 as a Large Animal Evacuation Center for animals from all over that needed a temporary home.

As of October 23, we are happy to report that all of the animals have now returned to their homes!

THANK YOU to all of the volunteers, donors and care givers that dedicated immeasurable time and resources to the animals and families at the Evacuation Center! Our community is amazing!

We will now be focused on cleaning up and dismantling the Evacuation Center.  You can still donate and help us reach our goal in support of the Evacuation Center to defer the expenses incurred since we opened.

On behalf of the animals and their families -
THANK YOU!

Can you believe it has been just over a month since we closed the Large Animal Evacuation Center at the Solano County Fairgrounds? Thousands of people banded together at the Fairgrounds; some helped for a couple of hours, others for days at a time, and some for the entire two weeks of activity.

There was such an abundance of donated feed and hay that we were well provisioned to take care of the animals throughout the two weeks and beyond. Extra supplies were sent with the rescued animals on their way home and we were even able to re-donate materials to other rescue centers and animals in need throughout the area.

The human caretakers were well cared for too. The community really came together to help keep the volunteers well fed and ready to keep up the work necessary to care for the 500+ animals that utilized the Evacuation Center.

Your contribution to our Go Fund Me campaign helped fill in the gaps that physical donations couldn't meet and were critical in helping provide a temporary home for the displaced animals.

Thank you – we simply can’t say it enough. In this season of giving thanks, we want to be sure that you know your efforts were greatly appreciated. We deeply value and are humbled by the strong spirit of volunteerism and giving that helped to shine a bright light on the Solano County Fairgrounds during those two weeks in October.

THANK YOU!
