CAPE’s Wildfire Animal Assistance Fund (WAAF) has been providing financial aid for animals who have been affected by the devastating wildfires in California.
We recently helped a wonderful local organization, Gold Country Wildlife Rescue (GCWR), by providing support for multiple wild animals who have suffered injuries from various fires in Northern California.
Three orphan bear cubs arrived at the (GCWR) Wildlife Intake Center suffering from burns and injuries sustained in the Antelope and Dixie Fires. GCWR is also caring for two kit foxes who sustained serious burns and injuries in the Dixie and Caldor fires. All five animals will require ongoing care and rehabilitation before it is safe to release them back into the wild. The cubs will remain in the care of GCWR until they are approximately 18 months of age which will be in the late spring or summer of 2022. The kit foxes will require 4-6 months of medical care before it is safe to release them back into the wild.

We are thankful to Gold Country Wildlife for all the amazing work to help animals in need.
