Support Base Camp's move

Please  help Base Camp's efforts to move to a long-term location. We are more  than 3-month post fire and we know our efforts will be needed for  several more months and perhaps even a year. Due to Right of Entry requirements, we had to relocate from our current location. We have been trying, our best, to minimize our expenses, but this move has put a strain on our resources. We need to get all of the animals off the hill as soon as possible! They are in toxic conditions and need HELP! We really appreciate all of the support that so many people have shown us!!! Thank u!!

Daily Operational Costs

We are operating daily off generators, propane, and gas. This is costing us about $40 a day, just to be able to care for the kitties properly. We are hoping to raise the funds needed for solar panels. We also have expenses for building materials, food, and other items we need to finish setting up. The volunteers also have been spending a on of money, out of pocket, in order to catch these Camp Fire survivors.

About Us

A Winning Team


Our amazing team of regulars and part-time volunteers are committed to  helping our animals. We take our convictions and turn them into action. Think  you would be a good fit? We would love to have you! We have all types of jobs to fit your talents!  Dedicated volunteers are essential to the successful operation of Friends of Camp Fire Cats. Volunteers  are needed to help facilitate rescue operations, which include  cleaning, food preparation, administrative support for field workers,  and helping ensure that cats are in good health. Thank you for your interest in helping in the recovery of our community! 


Our History


 Friends of the Camp Fire Cats  was formed in 2018, as the Camp Fire was still raging in the Butte  County areas of Paradise and Magalia. Many of the shelter resources  within Butte County were full within days of the fire beginning which  left this group wondering “how can we help?” With the help of a local  resident, base camp was formed in Paradise and we were able to keep helping animals. As many owners are  not in the Paradise/Magalia area, the need to house the cats became  apparent and our group has grown from there.  We all adhere to the key  mission, which is to help as many cats and residents with their cats  from the Camp Fire.

Animals Are Our Mission


We focus on making the maximum positive effort. Our  members and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us do good work.  Using community driven models, we take actions that make a long-lasting  difference.  We have found that even cats that were trapped  inside houses were able to escape unscathed. Do not assume your cat has  perished. Request to have a feeding station and trail cameras set up at  your property. If we spot your cat we can set up a trap.
