Donor Recognizes Nevada County Veterinary Disaster Response Team

Pat from the Nevada County Veterinary Disaster Response Team was on the grounds last week receiving an anonymous donation from a member of the Nevada County Fairgrounds Board of Directors.  Pat and her team of volunteers are the county’s go-to team when there is a need to set up a large and small animal evacuation center at the Fairgrounds.  They are on the grounds whenever there is an evacuation, a disaster or an emergency, and they serve tirelessly and selflessly to keep our community’s animals safe and loved amidst chaos.  With the recent fires in Nevada County, this group cared for more than 350 animals, including 100+ horses!  We’re happy to see this organization receiving a large donation, and we thank them for serving our community and our animal friends.
