• SPCA Takes In Pets from the Camp Fire

    Today, a team from the SPCA travelled to Butte County to take in cats and dogs who were in shelters before the fire began in order to give their local shelters room for more fire evacuees.

    The SPCA took in 21 cats and kittens, including eight feral cats, five dogs, and one puppy. Twenty five of the pets were in the shelter before the fires began, and two were surrendered by their owners who could no longer keep them. Pets who were lost during the fire are still in Butte County to give their owners the chance to be reunited.

    These 27 pets will be placed up for adoption after we provide veterinary treatment, vaccinations, and spay or neuter surgeries. You can help by adopting one of the 112 animals currently in our shelter looking for homes to help make room for more animals in need. Right now, all cats five months and older can be adopted for no fee.

    The SPCA has also offered assistance to Ventura County Animal Services and we have a skilled animal rescue team ready to rescue animals from fire areas once requested.

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
