WCRAS would like to thank everyone who assisted with this coordinated effort: 
University of Nevada Reno Equine Center, Community Emergency Response Team, Nevada Department of Wildlife, Nevada Department of Agriculture, Nevada Humane Society, Carson City Animal Control, multiple Washoe County Departments, Douglas County Animal Control, Lyon County Animal Control, Truckee Animal Services and members of the public that provided assistance and donations.
