It hasn’t been easy for South Carolina residents when Hurrican Florence hit. Many people had to evacuate and brought with them their most valuable goods. When they left their pets, there was a hero from Tennessee refuses to see anyone left behind during natural disasters, especially animals. That’s why the Greenback, Tennesee man transformed a bus into a mobile animal shelter to pick up all the “leftover” pets that animal shelters were unable to place before they evacuated for hurricanes like Florence and Harvey.
This hero is Tony Alsup but you could call him Noah. He is a volunteer with EARS Emergency Animal Rescue and Shelter who owns a school bus just to save animals in these kind of situations. He recently traveled from his home in Tennessee to South Carolina to save more than 60 animals during Hurricane Florence, 53 dogs and 11 cats as of Sept. 16, according to The Washington Post. From there, Alsup delivered the pets to a rescue facility in Foley, Alabama, where they’ll eventually be transferred to other animal shelters across the country — and hopefully, adopted into forever homes.
Tony is definitely the kind of hero our beloved dogs deserve, and luckily he showed up right when they needed him the most. Please share this story with your friends and your family!
