We want to get every pet back to their families ASAP. In order to help with this effort, a website has been created at to view “lost” animals (animals that we do not know the name of the owner). Additionally, the website offers other resources to help locate your pets. Please note the "Resources" tab; some animals are currently housed outside the emergency shelter.  If you think you see your pet, call 530-895-0000 Ext 9.


A Facebook "Group" has been created to match people who want to foster with people needing temporary fostering of their animals.  The site is .  You will need to have a Facebook log in to use this person-to-person service.


We welcome the support of National Animal Rescue groups which have mobilized to help us continue the process of evacuation and sheltering. These groups have sent teams of volunteers who are experienced with large-scale disasters such as hurricanes and floods, and provide fresh, trained volunteers to continue the effort to help animals affected by the Camp Fire. 

Also, in partnership with Butte County and other local agencies, and with your kind donations, we are building a professional staff to continue the care and rehoming of Camp Fire animals, no matter how long it takes. 


We are humbled by the support we have received locally and nationally. Thank you all for your contributions of volunteer service and donations to allow us to help people by helping their animals.

We appreciate the support of our partners during this unprecedented fire event.

If you want to donate to NVADG, please consider a cash donation. It gives us the flexibility we need-- and we will need it! Donate on our website or send a check to NVADG, PO Box 441, Chico, CA  95927. We are loaded up with material donations of food and supplies. Thank you for your generosity.


At this time, we are asking NVADG-trained volunteers to contact us to be scheduled for continuing care. .
