Cats affected by California fires brought to Washington

(Progressive Animal Welfare Society) is welcoming a rescue transport of homeless cats from Sonoma County communities impacted by the wild fires.  

The fires that have ravaged Sonoma County, California have left hundreds of animals without homes, so PAWS (Progressive Animal Welfare Society) is stepping in and transporting homeless cats from the wildfire area to shelters around Washington.

The incoming cats where being held in shelters in Sonoma County before the diaster struck but due to the influx of animals separated from owners, the county's animal shelters have not been able to care or find space for all the animals.

This rescue mission is a partnership between PAWS, ASPCA, Sonoma County Animal Services, and Alaska Airlines.
