Devastating wildfires are raging across California and parts of Oregon with no end in sight. So far, six brave firefighters have sacrificed their lives combating the flames.

During such a terrifying time, we’re reminded of the importance of the emergency personnel who are putting their own lives at risk to fight the flames and rescue others – including our animal friends.

This video was taken from the body cams of police officers who worked hastily to evacuate around 60 dogs and cats from the Solano SPCA shelter as a brush fire quickly approached the building.  Thanks to the diligence of these heroic officers, all of the animals were saved and have since been relocated to foster homes.

The happy ending to this story reminds us of the importance of looking out for those who need our help the most during times of crisis.
