Updates from Sonoma County Animal Services and The HALTER (horse and livestock emergencies) Project: Unless new evacuation orders are in effect, the focus now is on WELFARE CHECKS FOR ANIMALS SHELTERED IN PLACE (SIP). This means that teams of AUTHORIZED RESPONDERS will be checking on animals and assessing their health, watering, feeding, and giving a reassuring pat or scratch!

TO REQUEST WELFARE CHECKS:
Register your request. Several contacts can take your info:
CALL: 707-565-7100, 707-565-4406
TEXT: 707-318-7526
EMAIL: rescue@halterfund.org

INFO TO INCLUDE:
Name, Phone Number
LOCATION OF ANIMALS: Town, Neighborhood, Street Address
ACCESS INFO: gate code, lock combo, etc
SPECIES & Number of animals
LOCATION OF ANIMALS: House? Pasture? Pens?

You will receive a call or other message to let you know your animals are being checked. Veterinarians are on standby to assess and treat animals. The UCD VERT has set up Triage and Vets have been making house calls. IMPORTANT: only authorized teams can enter hot zones for welfare checks. Please do not attempt to enter a hot zone. Self-deployed helpers actually put everyone, including animals, at risk. We must work with emergency services to do the best job of helping animals, and people.

DONATIONS
You may donate online and choose to restrict your gift to “NorCal Fire Relief”* or consider giving a gift to “Help where it's needed most” to ensure we have the resources to support our fire relief efforts as well as the animals who were already in our shelters. Thank you!

*SHS expects to expend 100% of restricted/designated donations to support Nor Cal Fire Relief efforts, however, should we receive funds in excess of what's needed to respond to this crisis, then the funds will be redirected to where the need is greatest to help the animals.

We will continue to update our Amazon Wishlist. Thank you!!

We are open at both locations! We've got pet food, supplies, toys, bowls, crates, and more for anyone who needs it! Supplies can be picked up at our Santa Rosa location at 5345 Hwy 12 W, Santa Rosa from 10am – 5pm daily, or our Healdsburg location at 555 Westside Rd, Healdsburg from 11am-5:30pm.
