But humans are not the only ones to have suffered in this devastating event. Thousands of animals have been transferred to emergency veterinary hospitals, many of them injured with severe burns. The ones that survived are being taken to clinics and shelters, which are bursting at the seams.
Clinics are also posting photos of lost pets on social media, and several Facebook groups have popped up trying to locate lost pets or reunite those have been found with their owners.
“One thing I’ve noticed in this tragedy is the kindness of others, even strangers,” Danz said. “People I didn’t even know would comment on my posts. I had this whole invisible team looking for my cats.”
Last week, someone identified Coco in the photos of lost pets on the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, and now the two have been reunited. Her paws were burned, but, according to Danz, she’s still “eating and loves to be petted.”
And if you’d like to help, there are several organizations you can donate to.
Right, now that you’ve grabbed a few tissues and are mopping up the tears, on to something fun.

And epic it was. Timmy, the groom’s best friend, played his part to perfection aided by the bride and the photographer. Note the veil – and is that a baseball cap under it?
“It was so hard not to laugh,” Timmy told Yahoo Lifestyle of the ridiculous moment he locked eyes with his best buddy. “He was really anticipating this first glance, but he turned around and was like, ‘Oh my God!’ We couldn’t stop laughing. We couldn’t breathe,” he said. “When it was time for the real reveal, he told me he had PTSD.”
