Meet the UC Davis Team Rescuing Animals From Wildfires

The LNU Complex Fire has left a huge selection of animals running for their lives.

The UC Davis Veterinary Emergency Response Team has been working nonstop to help rescue and treat animals injured in the fire. Crews have been looking after animals in the field and at evacuation centers.

Animals who need critical treatment are being looked after at the UC Davis animal hospital.

The team has treated more than 1,000 animals up to now. Veterinarians desire to help them heal enough to come back to their families, but it continues to be not known who a few of them belong to.

“Ultimately you want to reunite them with their owners,” said Dr. Lois Costa with the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.
