Camp Fire Updates, Nov. 21. 8:03 PM- Animal Rescue Information

 Here Samson is reunited with his owner at the Chico Airport Animal Shelter. The incredible story is that when Samson and his owner were fleeing the fire, Samson suddenly stopped going the direction they were heading, and pulled his owner in a different direction. The owner then observed that there were downed power lines in the path they were going to take. Good dog Samson! Photo and caption from North Valley Animal Disaster Group.
