On Monday October 9, 2017, the Livermore Police Department was contacted by Alameda County Animal Services asking that our Animal Control personnel join in a request for mutual aid from the Napa County Sheriff’s Department. Napa County needed more personnel to respond to requests for service from the residents in the fire ravaged area. Napa County Animal Services officers fielded calls and escorted outside agencies to the areas needing assistance. Two Livermore Animal Control officers responded to the request for help. Our personnel assisted in removing pets from homes where residents were unable to take their pets with them. The rescued pets were taken to a shelter with the hopes of reuniting them with their families. Our officers also navigated through dangerous and fiery terrain to assist residents in rural areas with evacuating their horses. The majority of their time was spent helping horse owners load and transport their horses, and identifying resources to transport horses that had no means available to them.
