Hurricane Florence Hero Volunteer Rescues 6 Dogs Abandoned In Locked Cage

This is not the only animal rescue to happen during the devastation of Hurricane Florence. Hero volunteers have rescued six dogs found abandoned in a locked cage in North Carolina, where they nearly drowned in the Hurricane Florence’s fast-rising flood waters.

The dogs were rescued from a property in Leland, North Carolina where their owners left them as they fled the hurricane. They nearly drowned in rising flood waters before rescuers got to them. Once the chain-link fence is unlocked the dogs swim out whimpering, howling and scared.

In the emotional video, which has already racked up more than 1.3 million views shows the dogs barking and standing on their hind legs as they see volunteer rescuer Ryan Nichols of Longview, Texas wade in the knee-deep water towards the creatures.

In North Carolina the flood waters reached four feet in height on Sunday, while continuing to rise steadily. According to accuweather.com, the flooding near the Yadkin river in Jonesville is forecast to crest at 26.6 feet. We pray that everyone should be safe and secure, dry and warm. And we pray for the security of their property.
