When natural disasters take place, we must all rally together to help each other out. Hurricane Florence recently touched down in North Carolina and forced a wide range of citizens to evacuate. Unfortunately, this mad dash often causes people to leave their pets behind because they are in a state of panic. These forgotten pets are left with no recourse.
Luckily, there are rescue teams who are willing to step up to the plate and provide the necessary assistance. The United States Coast Guard was responsible for intervening in this situation. They were able to keep several dogs from being swept away by the raging waters. It is believed that at least 14 dogs were saved by the Coast Guard and their efforts deserve recognition.
Four pit bulls and ten beagles were saved. The beagles’ owner was beyond thrilled. Josephine’s trailer was underwater due to the storm. She had no chance of saving her beagles on her own. If the Coast Guard had not sent boats at this time, who knows what would have became of her precious pups? She and her husband were incredibly grateful.
