If you're local...

1) Keep your companion animals inside. 

2) Leave buckets of water outside for wildlife who venture into your yard.

3) In the event of an evacuation, please bring your companion animals with you.

Other ways to help

1) Send donations to the Humane Society of Ventura County, which is housing displaced animals. They are excepting monetary donations as well as supplies from their Amazon wishlist.

2) Send donations to the Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation here.

3) Provide foster homes for animals through Citizens for a Humane Los Angeles, which will help clear up shelter space for animals in need. Contact the organization here.

4) Visit The Red Cross to donate. The Red Cross provides shelter and medical support for victims of the fires.
