A Huntington Beach wildlife center successfully evacuated 1,000 animals to local shelters on Saturday night ahead of Hurricane Hilary.

The Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center in Huntington Beach is located near the shore and workers are concerned that the impending storm and potential storm surge will flood the facility. 

Earlier on Saturday, the wildlife center was asking local truck owners to help transport the animals but since all animals have been safely moved, no truck owners’ assistance is needed.

The wildlife center is located at 21900 Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach.

The Santa Ana Zoo and the California Wildlife Center in Malibu are sending teams to help assist with the animal evacuation process.

To help, call 714-374-5587 and ask for Debbie or Janet.
