Urgent! Brush Fire In Riverside CA! Animal Shelter Needs Help!

Extremely Urgent Southern California!!!

From Jen at Riverside Shelter: “Not sure if you’ve heard but there’s a huge fire burning right near our Jurupa Valley animal shelter. We are without power and we need help!”

I am asking if you could spread the word to any of our rescue partners that would like to pull animals we need animals to exit now.

All available animals. Dogs cats etc

On our website all adoptable animals and all needs rescue animals are available to exit the shelter immediately.

The main road to the Shelter is still closed but we talked to emergency personnel and they will allow staff to escort rescue partners to the shelter to exit animals.

We have no landline phone access. We are able to check our rescue email via our cell phones.

Just a note power is completely out we have no computer access. This is still an active fire and we are functioning in emergency mode with no power.

Please no time wasters we need animals to exit immediately. Contact via Rescue email only.


Thank you for your help!
