Take a look inside evacuation center for animals displaced by Bay Area wildfires

DALY CITY, Calif. (KGO) -- We got a peek inside the Cow Palace on Monday which has been converted into a temporary animal shelter during the wildfires burning across the Bay Area.

So far they've taken in nearly 300 evacuated animals - but organizers say there's room for more.

Cow Palace CEO Lori Marshall lists the animals that have been brought so far.

"We have chickens, peacocks, llamas, horses, cattle, goats, sheep and one pig."

Willy the camel was one of the animals safely evacuated from the fire zone over the weekend, San Mateo County shared on their Twitter.



"The horses are herd animals," Steven Ciarametaro, a stable owner said. "They know each other. They want to be around each other, they're altogether here. They can see each other, they can smell each other. They're pretty calm."

Organizers say this is the first time, in memory, that the Cow Palace has been used as an animal evacuation center.
