Sobre la aceptación de gatos callejeros afectado por los incendios

(Septiembre. 23, 2020 – Fénix, Oregón) Servicios para animales del condado de Jackson(JCAS) el personal ha comenzado a mudarse de regreso al edificio del Refugio de Animales en Phoenix. Los animales callejeros que habían estado en el refugio antes de los incendios han sido devueltos al refugio. Otras mascotas desplazadas que aún no están en cuidado de crianza, así como las mascotas que están alojadas temporalmente para propietarios desplazados regresarán al refugio en algún momento del domingo 27 de septiembre

Los animales desplazados por el fuego que han sido traídos por otros están en un período de “retención” de 30 días para permitir que los propietarios los busquen en el refugio antes de que sean puestos en adopción.

Los propietarios pueden hacer una cita con el refugio para buscar a su mascota (llame al 541-774-6654). Es posible que la información del refugio Petharbor no esté completamente actualizada en este momento.

¡Información importante sobre gatos!

La gerente del programa de refugios, Kim Casey, tiene otra información importante para el público sobre la entrada de mascotas desplazados debido al incendio:

  • Los gatos que se encuentren heridos en las áreas devastadas por el fuego pueden ser llevados al refugio en 5595 So. Pacific Hwy con cita (llame 541-774-6654), o transportarlos directamente al Centro de Especialidades Veterinarias del Sur de Oregon (SOVOC) al 4901 calle Biddle en Central Point.
  • Se le pide al público que considere dejar en el lugar a los gatos sanos y ilesos que encuentren en las áreas afectadas por el fuego.A partir de experiencias pasadas de incendios, el Departamento de Agricultura de Oregón recomienda alimentarlos en su lugar y documentar su ubicación como la mejor manera de garantizar que los animales desplazados de su propiedad puedan reunirse con los propietarios.
  • Además, si encuentra un gato callejero que no ha sufrido lesiones y puede cuidarlo, informe inmediatamente al animal a los Servicios para animales del condado de Jackson mediante el correo electrónico lostpet@jacksoncounty.org. Adjunte una fotografía y una descripción para que el personal pueda tratar de relacionar al gato con los informes perdidos que han recibido. También hay muchas otras páginas de Facebook donde un buscador puede publicar:  https://www.fotas.org/lost-found-facebook/ . Llevar primero a la mascota a un veterinario para un escaneo de chips puede reunir a los dueños rápidamente.
  • En este momento, no se aceptarán en el refugio gatos callejeros o de propiedad de fuera de las áreas de fuego.
  • Los oficiales del refugio no pueden brindar asistencia para la captura de animales. Actualmente no hay trampas disponibles para pedir prestadas en el refugio. El personal puede proporcionar consejos y recursos para las personas que deseen atrapar a sus propias mascotas.

Animales muertos

Si se encuentra un animal fallecido en las áreas de incendio, puede llamar a Servicios para Animales del Condado de Jackson para que lo recojan a (541) 774-6654. Los oficiales escanearán todos los restos en busca de un chip y un catálogo donde se encontró el animal y el personal intentará relacionar al fallecido con los informes de “pérdida” en el sistema. Desafortunadamente, debido al estado de los restos, el refugio no podrá ofrecer a los residentes la oportunidad de ver animales fallecidos.

Gestión de la entrada al refugio

El refugio de animales está haciendo todos los esfuerzos responsables para ayudar a nuestra comunidad en este momento.

Hay aproximadamente 140 gatos y gatitos que ya se encuentran en hogares de crianza al 23 de septiembre. Si bien es posible obtener recursos de crianza adicionales, sin una gestión cuidadosa de la ingesta, el refugio podría exceder rápidamente la capacidad, por lo que se han establecido ciertas limitaciones durante este tiempo.También debe tenerse en cuenta que es posible que el refugio también deba hacerse cargo del cuidado de algunos gatos que actualmente están siendo tratados en SOVSC cuando los animales comiencen a recuperarse. Otras clínicas se han acercado para brindar apoyo a SOVSC, pero los recursos de todos los involucrados están seriamente limitados en la actualidad.

El personal del refugio extiende su más sincera preocupación a todos en la comunidad en este momento y aprecia profundamente su amor y sus esfuerzos para ayudar a las mascotas desplazadas y heridas.

 

 

How to help cats within the fire area

The Jackson County Animal Shelter is asking that the public consider leaving healthy, un-injured cats that they locate in the fire affected areas on site instead of bringing them to the shelter.
Please read how to help these cats below.

Although the Jackson County Animal Shelter will accept these cats, the Oregon Department of Agriculture recommends feeding these cats in place and documenting their location as the best way to ensure that owned displaced animals can be reunited with their owner. The shelter does not accept feral/community cats unless they are injured or suffering from illness.

The Shelter is also not accepting stray or owned cats from outside the fire areas at this time. Our capacity to provide care for stray cats is limited, and we already have approximately 140 cats (including kittens that were already in care) in foster care. While it may be possible to get additional foster resources, we will quickly exceed our capacity without careful management of intake.

We are also anticipating the need to take over care for some of the injured cats that are currently being treated at Southern Oregon Veterinary Specialty Center (SOVSC) as their care becomes manageable outside the hospital setting. At this point, other clinics have reached out to provide support to SOVSC, but the resources of all involved are seriously strained and cannot support caring for large numbers of healthy, stray animals.

How to help cats within the fire area:

Our recommendation is for those that are willing to care for found cats to immediately report them to Jackson County Animal Services using our dedicated email address . This option allows the finder to attach a photo that staff can use to try to match lost reports. There are also numerous other social media pages for reports.


Trapping update:

Jackson Animal Shelter officers are not able to provide assistance with trapping of owned animals and the shelter does not currently have traps that can be borrowed for this purpose. There are several local sources where people can purchase live traps and our staff are happy to provide advice and resources for those seeking to trap their own pets.


Deceased animals:

If residents locate a deceased animal in the fire areas, they can call Jackson County Animal Services for pickup. Our officers will scan all remains for a microchip and will catalog where the animal was found. We will also make an effort to match any information to lost reports in our system. Unfortunately, due to the condition of the remains, we will be unable to offer residents the opportunity to view deceased animals.
