In November, a video by Douglas Thron was posted online showing Shannon Jay in Paradise, California saving a cat who was stuck under a truck destroyed by the fire. The video is devastating as it shows the damage done by the fires, but when Jay hears a meow coming from the truck, he calmly and heroically springs into action. He finds a way to lift the truck on one side using cement bricks so that he can crawl underneath and pull the cat out.

It’s a heroic and compassionate act. Shannon Jay dedicates much of his time to saving cats from burn zones. We often hear about the suffering such fires cause people, but we wouldn’t want to forget the animal victims of these disasters. As the video states, these wildfires left thousands of animals missing and in need of being rescued. Thankfully, heroes like Shannon Jay are out there helping the animals.
