Santa Clara Valley Koi and Water Garden Club was called in to assist  FEMA / ASPCA  with Koi rescue for the Sonoma Fire victim’s koi ponds October 23rd.  We responded. Over 150 Koi were rescued from these wildfires , the most injured survivors are being cared for at UC Davis.

Members donated time and resources to assist by setting up  temporary holding tanks and providing equipment and supplies for the rescued Koi.

The Koi fire victims have been temporarily housed and cared for until they can be returned to their owners.  Some are now available for adoption from the Sonoma County Animal Shelter .  Thank you to our membership and sponsors for caring for these aquatic fire victims!    

If you would like to help support these efforts please send donations to:

SCVKWG, PO Box 54368, San Jose, CA 95154 

Please note that your donation is for the Sonoma Fire Koi Rescue Project. Donations are tax-deductible.
