Valley Fire (copy)

With fire season almost here, now’s the time to make sure you and your household are prepared to care for your pets, as well as any horses, 4-H animals, or other livestock you may own.

To learn about planning for animals in disaster, the Napa Community Animal Response Team (NapaCART) and Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch (JARR) will host a Town Hall at the Copia Theater on Wednesday, May 29.
