EAGLE POINT, Ore. -- Homeowners near the Ramsey Canyon Fire aren't the only ones who have to worry about evacuating, animals do too. 

Christina Belton, Namaste Rescue Ranch Owner, is doing everything she can to help them out.

Belton works through Southern Oregon Emergency Services to help evacuate animals and bring them to wherever they need to go, including her ranch. 

"We get all of the healthcare that they need and I think that's what is supposed to be done for them, it's the right thing to do," Belton said. 

She also said animals can stay at her ranch for as long as they need, free of charge.

"You don't have to have money to get help, you don't have to have resources of your own to get somebody to help you, we will help you," Belton said. 

After her recent experience having to evacuate her animals near the Green Top Mountain Fire, Belton said she wants to pay it forward.

"Once you get that animal out and it's safe then the people can think about what they need to do for themselves," Belton said. 

Anyone who needs help evacuating or moving animals should contact Southern Oregon Emergency Aid.
