Jameson Humane, (formerly, Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch) raised $1.3 million at their annual fundraiser, WineaPAWlooza, including $300,000 for urgent and critical disaster response items needed through the Fund-A-Need.
The funds were split between three regional volunteer-run organizations, the Napa, Sonoma, and Solano Community Animal Rescue Teams (CART), and the Community Emergency Rescue Team (CERT), managed by Napa County. The three CARTs and CERT came together at Jameson Humane on Aug. 3, to receive the donation.

The Napa CART team was founded in 2016 in response to the Valley Fire in 2015, and the Sonoma and Solano CARTs followed in response to the 2017 fires, with the goal to work safely, quickly and effectively to save human and animals’ lives, impacted by disaster. CART brings together volunteers with a broad range of relevant skills, including veterinary, operations, incident management, volunteer coordination and financial experience.
A common goal between CERT and the three regional CARTs is standardizing protocol for disaster response, not only regionally or statewide, but nationally.

It is a busy year for Len Ramirez whose ability to find, capture and humanely transfer rattlesnakes snakes to wilderness locations has garnered him the loyalty and respect of those who want to protect pets and people but who also understand that snakes play a vital role in maintaining healthy ecosystems.
WineaPAWlooza wine action to benefit Jameson Humane was held as a hybrid in-person and virtual event this year.
