The daily care as well as feed, medications and other necessary supplies will be the responsibility of the animal owner.

Animal owners that are currently under voluntary or mandatory evacuation orders are strongly encouraged to evacuate with their pets as the emergency may prevent resources from entering impacted areas to assist with animals due to safety concerns. Large animal owners under an evacuation warning (voluntary) order are encouraged to implement their personal evacuation plans.

While evacuating, please ensure that vehicles such as large trailers are not blocking roadways as this may impact the ability of first responders to travel to impacted areas. For general information and the latest updates on the Bond Fire, please call the Orange County Emergency Operations Center Public Information Hotline at (714) 628-7085.

Residents are encouraged to stay informed of the most current information by monitoring:
