Karen Aycock, 54, of Santa Rosa died Monday in the Tubbs Fire. She loved animals, perhaps more than people, her friends said. Ms. Aycock volunteered with animal rescue groups and had several cats, who meant everything to her, said Chad Hinden, Aycock’s friend and former roommate. She wouldn’t have left her beloved animals behind even if her life were in danger, he said. “Even if she knew there was a fire, she more than likely would have perished trying to rescue them,” said Hinden. “She wouldn’t leave the house without her animals.” Ms.

- Amid fires, young volunteers team up to rescue horses from evacuated ranches
By Tara Duggan - Friday Oct 13, 2017
On Thursday around midday, Sacramento large-animal veterinarian Emily Putt and Petaluma horse hauler Hilary Hansen rode past the police barricade to a ranch in Calistoga. Their mission: to rescue three horses stranded after the Wine Country fires. Putt, 27, and Hansen, 29, had been strangers before the fires struck, but since meeting at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds on Tuesday they have become fast friends by working together throughout the fire zones, rescuing animals that owners had to leave behind during evacuations.

Lena Dunham Fires Back at Animal Shelter Over Dog-Abuse Claim: ‘Misunderstanding the Truth’“After four years of challenging behavior and aggression that could not be treated with training or medication or consistent loving dog ownership, Lamby went to live at an amazing professional facility in Los Angeles @matt_thezendog where an awesome person named @therealdanishay (who is educated in a rescue dog’s specific trauma) loves him so hard,” Dunham wrote.“Lamby suffered terrible abuse as a pup that made having him in a typical home environment dangerous to him and others – we needed to be responsible to ourselves, our neighbors and especially our beloved boy,” she continued.[...] I feel I have to share that last March, after four years of challenging behavior and aggression that could not be treated with training or medication or consistent loving dog ownership, Lamby went to live at an amazing professional facility in Los Angeles @matt_thezendog where an awesome person named @therealdanishay (who is educated in a rescue dog's specific trauma) loves him so hard.Lamby suffered terrible abuse as a pup that made having him in a typical home environment dangerous to him and others- we needed to be responsible to ourselves, our neighbors and especially our beloved boy.Jack and I will miss him forever but sometimes when you love something you have to let it go (especially when it requires tetanus shots and stitches.) Someday I'll really write about the pain and relief of letting Lamby go off and really be Lamby, biting and peeing in his own mouth and all.Susan & Karen will never be my first loves, but they are fuzzy and hilarious stuffing for the hole Lamby left and we cherish them deeply ??#lamby #thefirstcutisthedeepest #foreverlamb PS If you have a similar situation, please know its possible to responsibly re-home your rescue rather than sending them back into the shelter system.Read original story Lena Dunham Fires Back at Animal Shelter Over Dog-Abuse Claim: ‘Misunderstanding the Truth’ At TheWrap
