Help please. Northern CA Fires



10/11 – 9:30 pm – After a busy day intaking animals, we took in a total of 43 animals and expect many more tomorrow. We helped pull animals from shelters in Sonoma and Santa Rosa and were disheartened seeing the dogs and cats covered in ash with burned paws. So many animals are in need of help and relocation. We received 120 new foster sign-ups just today! Where would we be without this incredibly community.

All Hopalong staff are in Sonoma gathering up animals from Sonoma animal shelters. Hopalong has pulled 30 animals from Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park so far today. We’re now just heading to the Sonoma Animal Shelter and expect to pull at least 20 more furred ones.


We need volunteers and drivers.
