Oprah and Katy Perry’s Homes Threatened as Thomas Fire Grows to Third Largest in State History

Oprah Winfrey and Katy Perry are the latest among the thousands of Californians to be affected as the Thomas Fire rages on, becoming the third-largest wildfire in the state’s history.

Winfrey, who has a home in the coastal city of Montecito, said in a tweet on Saturday that while her house was “so far still standing,” the situation is not getting any easier for those on the scene.

“Still praying for our little town,” the 63-year-old host wrote. “Winds picked up this morning creating a perfect storm of bad for firefighters.”

Perry, 33, shared on her social media pages that her parents had to evacuate their home in Santa Barbara County on her mother’s birthday.

“Woke up to wish my mom a happy 70th birthday today to find my brother evacuating them from the insane #ThomasFire in Santa Barbara County that has kicked up once again… praying for the firefighters & first responders that are fighting it back as best they can,” she said, adding a broken heart emoji. “Love you SB.”

The singer later added a message thanking firefighters and first responders who continue to battle the blaze.

Several celebrities have left their homes due to the fire threat since the fire started near Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula (its namesake) on Dec. 4. Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi shared last week that they had evacuated their six pets from their home near Santa Barbara, while former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof announced her family’s evacuation on Twitter.

Chelsea HandlerLionel RichieParis Hilton and Lea Michele also had to leave their homes for safer ground.

The massive Thomas Fire covered at least 267,500 acres as of Saturday evening, according to CNN, making it the third-largest wildfire in California’s history. The 2003 Cedar Fire was the largest, which burned 273,246 acres in San Diego County.

Firefighters have fought strong winds to contain 40 percent of the blaze. Forecasters predict winds should ease late Sunday night, allowing for additional containment, the outlet reports.

Collectively, the blazes cover an area larger than New York City and Boston combinedCNN reports. Officials also announced at a news conference that more than 1,000 structures have been destroyed.

Two deaths have been linked to the recent fires in southern California. On Dec. 5 a 70-year-old woman was found dead and it is believed she crashed while trying to evacuate the Thomas Fire.

Cory Iverson, a 32-year-old fire-engine strike team member of Cal Fire’s San Diego unit, was killed as he fought a blaze near Ventura County on Thursday. Iverson’s wife Ashley is currently pregnant with their second child. The couple also has a 2-year-old daughter, Evie. A GoFundMe page has been created by Ashley’s friend to help with expenses following the tragedy.

These 4 Dogs Have Been Patiently Waiting for More Than a Year for Forever Homes — Adopt Them?

Every pet deserves a warm bed and an even warmer hug.

Unfortunately, there are countless pets in this world that are homeless and yearning to make a human’s life better. Shelter and rescues like Best Friends Animal Society, the largest no-kill animal organization in the country, help many of these cats, dogs and other critters find that forever home, providing them with the medical care, attention and diets they need until that happens.

This magical moment of “finding their human” occurs at different times for every pet. Some are only in the shelter for one day, but others are left to patiently wait for months, sometimes even years.

In honor of Adopt a Shelter Pet Day we want to highlight four superb canines that have been living with Best Friends for more than one year, hoping to find their forever. Maybe their wait is almost over.

Duke

“Handsome Duke is looking for a kingdom to reign over. This noble shepherd/Chow Chow mix is well-mannered and super smart. Duke likes to spend his time running around, playing, hoping for ear scratches and napping in his very own fashion: upside down, feet straight up to the sky. Duke is great with most other dogs and such a sweetie. He’d be a fabulous companion for any big dog lover,” gushed his current caretakers. 

If you think this active gentleman is for you, contact Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles at (818) 643-3989. 

Nina

Best Friends says, “Pretty Nina is a fun, active gal and the perfect exercise pal. She loves long walks, hikes and play time in the yard. Nina adores people and can play nicely with most other large dogs, too. She was recently in a foster home and was described as: ‘An absolute star! Nina’s an energetic, affectionate 75-pound lap dog.’ This special girl is so ready to be your best friend.” 

To learn more about this large lap dog, contact Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles at (818) 643-3989. 

Tyler

Best Friends describes 2-year-old Tyler as a young, lovable retriever mix that is smart, playful and super active. And he’s a smarty-pants who already knows sit, down and give paw! He has been in an amazing foster home with a trainer who is teaching him extra manners and commands so he can be your ideal companion. Tyler loves learning new things and going for long walks in the park. Tyler is a typical busy-body teenager and is looking for someone who shares his zest for life and is happy to help him work on his training. He loves other dogs but can be a little too wacky and wild for some.

If Tyler sounds like a perfect fit for your home, contact Best Friends Animal Society – New York (347) 762-3678.

Churchill

Churchill is a man of simple pleasures. This American bulldog mix just wants your love, some yummy treats and the occasional belly rub. Churchill takes a little extra time to warm up to new people, but with some extra TLC and patience (and treats!) he’ll be your bro, too. He’s got the most ridiculous and adorable underbite that makes him look like a character from Lord of the Rings. And he has the sweetest brown eyes. Churchill has also decided that he’s all the dog that anybody should really need and prefers to be the only dog in his home.

To become Churchill’s human, contact Best Friends Animal Society – New York (347) 762-3678.

This Meow-nificent ‘Cat Library’ Helps Shelter Felines Find Forever Homes

You don’t have to be a book-lover to fall in love with this pawsitively furry library.

At the Doña Ana County Government Center in New Mexico, there is a “cat library” where employees can “check out” a feline to play with while at work.

kitties
The “cat library.”

Though the program has been around for about three years, Tiffany Tillison, one of the employees, recently posted a picture of the adorable concept to Reddit, where it quickly went viral with more than 5,500 upvotes as of Friday. And while the cat library seems like a pet lover’s dream-come-true, it also serves a greater purpose: to raise awareness about shelter animals and help get the cats adopted.

“Most animal shelters are out of the way outside of towns (usually outside the city limits), so you have to really be thinking of adopting an animal to take the trouble to go over there,” Tillison told Buzzfeed. “But with this program, hundreds of people come through our lobby every day, so they can’t miss seeing them!”

The county works with the Animal Service Center of the Mesila Valley to get the cats, and according to the shelter’s director, Dr. Beth Vesco-Mock, using the library is simple. Her shelter brings kittens to hang out in “kitty kondo” — the office’s cat play area — and employees can then take a cat back to their desks to play with and return them once they’re finished. The shelter director says that the program benefits both the cats, some of which have special needs, and the workers.

“[The kittens] run around and they get socialized,” Vesco-Mock says. “And it helps reduce stress in the office and in the cubicles.”

Many of the kittens get adopted by employees who just can’t get enough of the little furballs. When all the cats get forever homes, the shelter sends down a new crop of furry friends. About 100 felines have found new families because of the program, Vesco-Mock said.

Meow, can we paw-lease get one of those at our office?!

Lil Bub And Instagram Help Find Loving Homes For Pets At SXSW

We all know social media basically exists for the sole reason of sharing adorable animal pics. But one recent initiative demonstrated how posing with a pooch can garner more than just likes.

Lil Bub, South by Southwest and Instagram recently teamed up to find loving homes for cuddly creatures. Through a meet-and-greet and photo opp at the annual music festival in Austin, Texas, the famous Internet cat helped raise $ 7,000 in three hours for animal rescue centers, Mashable reported.

“The people who attend SXSW are influential, and are using their networks to promote adoption and to help share photos of these adorable guys. I think it’s really powerful,” Olivia Melikhov, ASPCA’s senior manager of social media, told Mashable.

There has been no shortage of amazing moments at this year’s SXSW, including a private concert for a fan injured in the SXSW car crash, or that time Lady GaGa had someone puke on her, but we think a charity initiative involving the Internet’s favorite cat definitely tops the list.

Lil Bub, the goofy and lovable dwarf cat with a jaw deformity that causes her tongue to permanently hang out of her mouth, uses her internet fame for good. Her website calls her “an advocate for homeless and special needs pets all over the universe.” and to date she has raised more than $ 60,000 for various charities.

It’s no wonder that SXSW hosted so many animal friendly events, with Austin’s current standing as the largest no-kill city in the nation. A report from the City of Austin revealed that the city shelters have a 91 percent live animal outcome, with 4,3000 dogs and cats rescued in the three month period the study covered. That’s a number made all the more impressive by the fact that 6 to 8 million cats and dogs are entering shelters each year, according to The Humane Society of the United States.

It’s more important than ever to help loving, adoptable animals find permanent homes. Good thing, in Austin at least, there is no shortage of friendly faces willing to help out. As Instagram partnerships employee Charles Porch told Mashable, “Our community is so powerful on Instagram and they love a reason to get together and if we can pair that with dogs that need to be adopted, then these dogs are going to have the most beautiful photography of any dog up for adoption today.”
