Natural Disaster Contacts & Resources : Livestock & Pets
For British Columbia, and many other areas the recent wildfire seasons have been devastating. When times are tough, we often see incredible acts of generosity and passionate people step up to the plate. Meaningful collaboration between organizations, individuals involved in animal welfare efforts and goodhearted people in the general public is what is needed, and is exactly what we have seen.
Below you will find tools, resources and information from WCAA and other incredible organizations that are committed to connecting, collaborating and supporting those in need during the 2021 wildfires.
