August 29, 2017
As families continue to struggle from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, the devastating reality is that many animals were left behind.
But that isn't stopping animal lovers from doing what they can to rescue our helpless furry friends from the torrential floods.
Betty Walter shared the above photo and wrote on Facebook:
"To these amazing guys that helped me and some of my neighbors dogs that I rescued. I was worried there were too many dogs on the boat and it would tip over. I told them I would stay behind and for them to make 2 trips. They said NO we are taking all and you. We had 21 dogs on this boat. No place for any humans on this boat. We had to walk in water over my head to get out."
Julia Lucas shared a photo of her husband and wrote on Facebook:
"My husband just went down to Houston and is helping to evacuate all of the abandoned animals as well. though they are quickly running out of room for them."
Gadi Schwartz shared this video on Twitter and wrote:
"They couldn't save their home but they can save their dogs. 1 of the many families w/ pets struggling because of floods."
