San Diego Humane Society assisting in Shockey Fire

By Shelly Dunn

I hope for all of our safety in the wake of the shockey fire. If you need assistance for animals on your property. Please know that the Humane Society is available. May you and your animals avoid any hazard involved in this tragedy - please be safe.

As the media have reported, the Shockey Fire in East County has burned approximately 2,000 acres, 30 structures have been lost or damaged and one person has perished. According to the last update, the fire is only 10% contained.

The San Diego Humane Society is working in partnership with the American Red Cross, the County of San Diego Department of Animals Services and other law enforcement agencies to provide evacuation and relief efforts for affected animals.

As of 3pm today, the San Diego Humane Society has deployed three trailers, eight staff members and ten members of our Animal Rescue Reserve. We have moved supplies, crates and food into the field. We have established a temporary animal shelter adjacent to the American Red Cross evacuation center so that evacuated dogs, cats and other small pets can be close to their human families. More than 20 animals have been cared for at this site over the past two days.

Our Animal Rescue Reserve is available for large animal evacuation needs, and is providing food and water for the animals of people who are sheltering in place.

We have established a special area on our website with helpful information including details about the evacuation site(s) as well as daily updates from our teams in the field. This page can be found here.

As always, we thank you for your support and hope you find this update about our activities related to disaster support for animals informative.
