NorCal Wildfire Animal Rescue

Dozens of animals injured in Northern California's recent rash of wildfires have been treated and returned to their owners thanks to the top-ranked veterinary school in the world. 

70 animals have been rescued by the UC Davis Veterinary School's Emergency Response Team, led by professor Dr. John Madigan. 

"One dog, two llamas, 12 horses, 22 cats and 33 koi fish," says Dr. Madigan. 

Dr. Madigan says the animals have been treated for burns and smoke inhalation as well as injures suffered as they tried to escape the flames.

"You know how you watch videos of troops coming home and surprising families," says Dr. Madigan. "It's the same with pets and owners. Big time emotions." 

All but two of the animals have since been returned to their grateful owners. Dr. Madigan is still looking for the owners of two neutered male cats , an orange tabby with a bit of white on its chin; the other mostly white with a partially orange head and tail and a few orange spots on his back.  Both were found in Santa Rosa.
