When tropical storms and hurricanes take place, they can have severe effects that are felt for months afterwards. We all see the clean up efforts on television and believe that everything is all better. We do not see the misplaced animals who are forced to fend for themselves. Thousands of chickens, turkeys and pigs passed away when their barns were flooded and the owners fled.
One lucky pup was able to escape such a fate. The dog was found by a rescue team. PETA staffers found the dog inside of an abandoned home. He was trapped outside on the porch at the time. He did not seem to know why his owners had chosen to leave him behind. However, the loyal dog was willing to wait as long as it looks for his loved ones to return to the homestead.
Sights like these are far too common when storms like these occur. When the dog is first found, the animal is clearly afraid. Once he finally gets the chance to make eye contact with the rescuers, his whole demeanor shifts. It is as if he instinctively knows that help is on the way. This is one of the most heartwarming moments that has come out of the hurricane coverage.
