Andrea Gaylord is a mature woman living in northern California. When the fire began to attack, she was evacuated along with the rest of the residents. Everything happened so quickly that the woman could not take her faithful four-legged friend with her – a golden retriever named Madison.
Of course, at the first opportunity, the woman tried to return home to save her pet, but all roads are blocked by fire.
The fires kept California at bay for an entire month, killing eighty people and leaving thousands homeless. The tragedy also affected both wild and domestic animals. They were rescued by local volunteers.
Madison’s brother, along with his owners, lived in the small town of Citrus Heights. He, like Madison, could not be taken away during the evacuation. But he was more fortunate, he was found by rescuers. But to Madison, it was not possible to approach. There was practically no hope that the dog was alive.
Andrea was able to return only a month later. A devoted pet was waiting for her at the site of the burnt house. The woman could not hold back her tears. Her beloved dog was outwardly absolutely healthy.
Volunteer Sheila Sullivan, who was involved in the evacuation of animals, including Madison’s brother, spoke about Andrea’s experiences and the happy ending to this story.
The woman often made her way to the area and saw the dog. But because of the rubble, she could not get close to him to feed and drink. Everyone was wondering how he managed to stay safe and sound.
The volunteer burst into tears along with Andrea Gaylord. Madison was able to withstand the raging nature.
Both pets rejoiced at their meeting.
The woman does not despair, and plans to build a new house in the same place.
