Volunteers Rescue 18 Dogs From Flooded NC Neighborhood

Pets left behind in Hurricane Florence were saved by kind strangers in North Carolina.

A friend asked April Casey to help her rescue cats from flooded areas near Kinston, North Carolina after Hurricane Florence left the area drenched, but flooded streets made it impossible for her to get where she was heading. So she got out of her car and as she was walking, Casey heard dogs nearby whimpering and barking for help, so she made it her mission to rescue them.

Casey found the dogs at a nearby house, some trapped inside, some outside in a kennel and all of them scared as floodwaters rose around them. She enlisted the help of her friends and family, they brought a jet ski and some jon boats to help free the pooches and get them to higher ground. For about an hour and a half, people returned to the flooded house and brought the shaking, soaked dogs to safety.

In all, Casey and the other volunteers rescued 18 dogs, 10 of whom have already been reunited with their owners. “I love dogs. I love animals period,” Casey says. “They can’t save themselves.” So it’s a good thing she was there to do it for them.
