Due to the Lowell Fire burning in Nevada and Placer counties, the Nevada County Fairgrounds is being used as an evacuation center for small and large animals. We already have several animals on the grounds, and we will continue to receive and house animals as needed. Those with animals impacted by the fire, or need to remove animals to a safer location, are encouraged to use the Fairgrounds. If you need information regarding the animal evacuation process or have questions, contact Pat of the Nevada County Veterinary Disaster Response Team (Animal Evac) at (530) 913-6506. *This is Big John, who has been evacuated from his home, but is safe at the Fairgrounds!
