The devastating wildfires in California are no longer at the top of the news cycle, but the people and animals affected by them will be dealing with the effects for a very long time. Countless animals are still waiting to be reunited with their humans, while others are adjusting to being in unfamiliar environments after losing their homes. Grey tabby Mason was one of the lucky ones who has been reunited with his family. Mason busted out of his carrier when he was startled by the noise of a propane tank exploding just as his family was evacuating. They saw his photo on UC Davis‘ social media feed. Visit The Dodo for the story of this beautiful reunion. For information on how to help the victims of the Camp Fire, click here.
