A More Stable Environment

The Saddle Ridge Fire forced residents and their pets out of their homes and into the stables at Pierce College last weekend. Horses, donkeys, ducks and chickens from farms in Porter Ranch and Granada Hills found safety at the Equestrian Center, where Los Angeles County Animal Control, Emergency Response Team and volunteers gave the animals food, water and shelter. Animals arrived as early as 6 a.m. and stayed until evacuation orders were lifted the following day. The Equestrian Center filled quickly and housed about 150 horses, along with several other animals.
