Butte County Fire Cat Rescue

$28,173 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 473 people in 1 month
Friends and supporters , once again I'll be entering the burn zone to effect fire cat rescues. I spent well over 800 hours rescuing fire cats in the Tubbs Fire of Sonoma County and the Carr Fire of Shasta County.
This time I'll be self deploying to the Camp Fire in Butte County. There are thousands of missing, displaced and burned animals(most of them cats). I am requesting some help to purchase  equipment(trail cams, batteries ), food for my bait stations, veterinary donations, supplies  and fuel for the trips back and forth. Anything helps. This is a long haul effort and I'll be traveling to Butte County as often as twice a week(about 400 miles round trip)to rescue fire cats and to train volunteers and families on how to find their missing fire pets.
This is about the animals and their families. Bringing a lost pet back to these folks who've lost everything brings them back from the darkness and gives them hope. I witnessed this over and again when I reunited many fire cats with their families. I do not do this for a living bit out of love and compassion. Please check my fb page for regular reports and updates..

Just back from five straight days in the burn zone...many fire monkeys rescued with several criticals. Reunited several with their families. Am exhausted both mentally and physically but remain undeterred. Saw many fire cats I could not get to. We had two hard days of rain and that kept them hunkered down. The rain was a double edged sword...lots of standing water to drink but compromised cats that are wet and hypothermic will be further compromised. So many in need but due to politics, a fraction of the necessary rescuers...this is heartbreaking. Please check my fb page do a comprehensive field report

Good evening all, just back after three days and a night in the burn zone. Want again to express my sincere gratitude for your over the top generosity as I wade into this landscape to save fire monkeys. Am sincerely sorry that I've not had time to thank each of you. individually as you deserve. Yesterday was super busy as I hustled from address to address all day long. I saw many fire monkeys i was not able to wrangle up and I reckon that is a good thing as they had enough mojo to get away from me. I must have put out over fifty food/water combos and took furious notes to make sure to come back and start the rescue process. The scope and magnitude of this event is not relatable unless you've been in it. Around mid day, I effected the most dramatic rescue in my life. This fire monkey was not far away from death and I'll fill you in on a comprehensive report on my fb page tomorrow. Today was filled with tragedy and some triumph as I saw over 20 fire monkey, some burned but most getting by. I rescued a critically burned fire monkey this morning and raced her to the emergency vet hospital, praying that she would make it. The vet called me while I was back in the burn zone to say the little fighter had injuries that they could not help and they gently helped her across the rainbow bridge. My only solace, she didnt die a slow, agonizing death, alone and stuck in a drain pipe. This hit me hard and I had to have some down time to grieve for her. The day ended in some joy. I had a friend of my family reach out for help, desperate to know if their little Torti, Taco, survived the inferno. I drove up there in the dark to the property and found Taco alive and well in the drive way of their destroyed home. She ran off a ways as I placed a big bowl of water and food to get her by for the next three days until I return to rescue her. While at the vet today I made a $500 donation to the hospital as they have been taking in many, many burned animals and not charging a dime. This would not be possible without your help. Please check my fb page tomorrow for a comprehensive update..humbly,
SRJ
