Nothing is more horrific than miles of flames spreading left and right inexorably. This is the awful reality that exists in Northern California, United States, as a result of forest fires, but it is the pets that face the brunt of the disaster.
The flames in California have been so destructive that it is believed that at least 200,000 people have been forced to evacuate their homes in fear, leaving their defenseless pets to die.
As a result of the tragic situation, numerous specialist teams are working tirelessly to save hundreds of pets that have suffered serious burns and respiratory difficulties as a result of the smoke and fire.
Of all the different kinds of pets, the great majority are dogs and cats that had a family but were unable to take them with them during the flames. A rescue squad heard a kitten dubbed “fire cat” meowing among the hundreds of rubble in the catastrophe region, and it was one of the poor little creatures.
A kitten called Prince, like Fire Cat, is being treated for third-degree burns on his paws, tummy, and face. He is now being cared for by Veterinary Specialty Center of Southern Oregon Technical Assistant Kaity Kelsey and Veterinary Assistant Kayla Weisz.
After saving the animals, the specialists’ next task is to separate the humans from the pets. Veterinary hospital employees are using social media to aid themselves by publishing images of the animals.
And truth is that all animals, including farm animals kept as pets by their owners, are subject to harmful flames. Before the fire, horses and donkeys were afraid, and many were burnt, but they were also saved and reunited with their family.
Many animals, according to experts, are still trapped inside houses that have been damaged by the fire. As a result, the assistance of many more rescuers and good-hearted people who join as volunteers is critical in order to continue saving many more innocent lives.
