Pet & Livestock Emergency Planning
The SBFSC is pleased to work with local agencies and volunteers to coordinate efforts and prepare owners to evacuate companion animals and livestock in an emergency.
The San Benito Sheriffs Department has an all volunteer Equine Evacuation and Assistance Unit that can be dispatched to help assist livestock owners to evacuate animals. This unit is a trained group of community members that will bring their own trucks and trailers in to assist with the evacuations. If you would like to become a member of the unit, please contact the Sheriffs Department at (831) 636-4080 If you are in need of evacuating companion animals or livestock in an emergency, call 911.
