Texas National Guard members worked alongside other responders to rescue local citizens in flooded areas. Soldiers, firefighters, paramedics and neighbors ensured several thousand people and hundreds of dogs and cats were evacuated to safety.
If you wonder how you can help the pets in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, the answer is to make a donation to one of the many organizations that are working in the storm area. And consider adopting a pet. Every animal that is adopted from a shelter or rescue group makes room and gives another animal a chance to be adopted!
