The Santa Maria Valley Humane Society has taken in dozens of animals from shelters in the Woolsey Fire area over the past two days.

The humane society has received a total of 57 dogs and cats that were at the Ventura County Animal Services facility. They were transported to Santa Maria to free up space for pets that were recently evacuated due to the Woolsey Fire.

Some animals were also taken to other local humane society buildings, including Woods Humane Society and Santa Barbara Humane Society.

The cats received with medical conditions, such as respiratory issues, will be ready for adoption on Thursday. Dogs will be ready for adoption on Friday.
