LANE COUNTY, Ore. – If you were displaced due to the Holiday Farm Fire and are in need of food for your livestock or pets, help is available.

Lane County Animal Services said they have received several donated items they would like to make available to those impacted by the fire. They said they have grain for all livestock species, mixed quality hay, straw for bedding, buckets and other supplies.

PET SUPPLIES

Greenhill Humane Society, 88530 Green Hill Road, also has supplies for pets impacted by the fire. They have food, crates, bedding, leashes, collars, grooming supplies and toys. You can visit Greenhill from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week to pick up supplies.

“We feel very fortunate to be able to provide this type of support to those impacted by the fires, and we are grateful for all of the community members who have donated food, bedding, and care for the animals. Time and time again we see this community come together to help those in need, and it’s gratifying to be a part of that,” said Lane County Animal Welfare Officer Elyse Larkin.

If you are from a Level 2 or 3 evacuation area and are in need, officials ask you to come to the Livestock Building at the Lane Events Center today – Wednesday, Sept. 23 – before 4 p.m. Supplies will be provided on a first-come first-served basis.

Animal services joined local 4H groups at the center to provide shelter, food, and veterinarian care to animals displaced by the fire.

At one point, more than 500 animals were living at the center, from chickens to horses. Now, fewer than 100 animals remain, and the county hopes the supplies will help those remaining animals return home.
