In the rush to escape the wrath of Hurricane Florence, many Carolinians left their pets behind.
Others chose to ride out the storm at home with their furry friends, only to find themselves in need of rescue. So when the Coast Guard, National Guard, and volunteers started searching for survivors in the rising flood waters this weekend, more than a few pets were pulled onto boats or airlifted to safety.
According to the Coast Guard, 91 pets were rescued by Sunday in North Carolina alone. Helicopter crews rescued 20 of those pets.
