Yreka's Rescue Ranch swings into action for evacuated pets and their people

Summer fires force people to move in a hurry. And even people who can successfully round up their animals from in and around the house can find trouble finding places to keep them during evacuation.

Rescue Ranch in Yreka is familiar with this drill. A couple of years of big fires in Siskiyou County forced the operation to get creative with finding spaces for household pets, and quickly.

We get an update on this year's pet evacuations from Laura Finley, who was among the people forced to evacuate.

The ranch is participating in a low-cost vaccination and licensing clinic, the morning of August 25th.
