Wildfires ravaged across northern San Diego County last week. People were forced to evacuate their homes for their own safety. Animals and pets were victims, too, including Tikaani.

Cody K. Powers, Tikaani's owner, posted the good news on Craigslist, in which he said:

My girlfriend just called and told me that she found him. They are on their way to the Vet but he appears to be ok. We want to thank everyone in the community for their help. More to come this evening.

As you can see from the photos, Tikaani is very much an integral part of Powers' family. Those in the rescue community are ecstatic over this happy ending.
