California ranch taking care of more than 400 displaced animals


The Double S Ranch near Clovis, California has taken in more than 400 animals because of fires.

Animal rescue groups from all over the area have been bringing in horses, ducks, mules goats and cows displaced by fires. The land being used is typically used for barrel racing.

“We started out with just a few pens thinking we could help out some people and then it’s grown,” Derrick Simpson told Fox26.

According to a GoFundMe page, the ranch still has plenty of room for more animals. They are also raising money for more feed and supplies.

Some of the supplies they have already received include tents to shade the livestock, which is one of the most pressing needs. Simpson says they have all the room in the world, but no good way of containing the animals, so donations would be used to buy more pens.

Simpson believes they could hold up to 800 animals.
