Searchable Found Camp Fire Cat Database

This is Disaster Assist Team’s library database of found Camp Fire cats, updated daily. It contains cats from every location that’s had found Camp Fire cats, within and outside of Butte County, and as of the one year anniversary of the fire, has over 1,400 cats. Cats at unofficial sites, including many vet clinics (which were not included in NVADG’s database, since those sites did not have a contract with Butte County), were added here, as well. It also has fostered cats posted on social media since 1/8 (see the links in this post for prior), and sighted cats since 1/8.

We created this site because we didn’t want owners to have to keep scrolling through dozens of incomplete sites, or to have to see heartbreaking pics of cats who couldn’t be theirs.  We wanted people to be able to use their phones to search. We wanted an accurate resource with all available info about each found cat, all in one place!

Please see the INSTRUCTIONS tab, above, for Quick Start information on how to search for your lost Camp Fire Cat.

If you’re searching for someone else, or represent a shelter or vet clinic, please see the INSTRUCTIONS tab; scroll down to “ADVANCED SEARCH.”

Please see the MATCH tab for a quick entry into the library database by color/breed.

The CAMP FIRE RESOURCES tab links you to where to go to get help with general life resources as a Camp Fire survivor.

The CONTACT tab gives you information on how to reach Disaster Assist Team.

SEARCH is a direct link to the library.

  1. Hi can you please underline the word HERE or make in a stand out color because I had no idea after reading this what I was supposed to click on to actually get into the database. Finally just clicked on HERE. Thanks.


  2. Thank you! We are working now on entering the dogs and on updating cats and dogs every day. Many are moved, or found, or reunited every single day, and finding all that info (which is spread out everywhere) takes an enormous amount of time. Our recommendation is for searchers to focus on finding one lost pet at a time, or even two if they are of different breeds, to avoid overwhelm. That way, you can keep the little distinctive details about each pet in mind. See our resource doc linked above, under “finding missing pets” for many links to lost pet pics! Also see our action document here, for what you can do to persuade Gov. Newsom to keep Camp Fire pets from being adopted to non-owners or euthanized for at least 6 months (as Gov. Scott did in Florida last year during Hurricane Michael): Pass it on! We have only until 1/18!


  3. Great job.
    Please if you could add a separate page with LOST cats that is also searchable seperately. This would allow those of us trying to help match to do so much easier.


  4. Thank you, Victoria! You do such fine work for lost pets! So many people, from all over, are working hard — sometimes with their hearts in their throats — to help Camp Fire survivors find their pets. It’s heartwarming. Thank you, everyone.


  5. Thank you for the compilation of data and the time spent. It has been useful.
