Pets Displaced by Fire at Shelter Now


The North Bay firestorms have visited an unimaginable tragedy on thousands of people, their homes and their pets. Last week representatives from the Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) and the Hayward Animal Shelter drove to the Napa County Animal Shelter (NCAS) and brought back some of the pets available for adoption there. This opened up kennel space for the more than 100 animals pouring into NCAS.

FAAS transferred 11 dogs and four cats. While the shelter wishes more could have been taken in, the kennels were already full. About half the Napa guests have already been adopted or are being fostered to adopt. As of press deadline, the remaining pets include: Star, a six-year-old miniature pinscher; Chandler and Joey, two-year-old Chihuahua buddies who hope they can continue their “bromance” in a new home together; Jethro, a sweet-as-pie, one-year-old German shepherd; Craig, an energetic one-year-old fox terrier; Java, a lynx point Siamese; and Puffin, a two-year-old black and white cat.

Help the victims of this terrible disaster by adopting a homeless pet today. The shelter is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesdays. The shelter is closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
