After the Camp Fire, North Valley Animal Disaster Group invested in the research and development of an electronic animal disaster tracking & management program. Trevor Skaggs, who volunteers with both Butte County Search and Rescue and NVADG, has been leading the charge in the design and programming.
The new program is called Shelterly, and will be housed on the internet.
In January 2021 we started beta testing the program using inputs from the September, 2020 North Complex Fire. We look forward to continued testing, training and procedure documentation. In the event of a 2021 activation, we’ll use Shelterly in combination with existing processes.
While NVADG is excited about utilizing this program we are also excited about the possibilities of sharing this program with other animal rescue groups!
