'Keepers of the Wild' Wildlife Sanctuary successfully rescued four wolves that survived the Butte Fire in Northern California.

The wolves escaped the raging inferno by digging 15-foot tunnels underground.  However, after the fire's rage, the wolves were left without a home.

The owner contacted Keepers of the Wild hoping the sanctuary could take the wolves.

The former owner of the wolves, Buck Schaechterle, said “My wolves survived only by a complete miracle. I am so thrilled my beautiful animals will be going to such a good home.”

Watch out their story.
