North Carolina has experienced a disaster following Hurricane Florence last week, with over one million people evacuated in the state.
Residents are in dire need of help and rescue from their homes.
But while humans should be prioritized, there are sadly other living beings suffering at the hands of the great natural disaster pervasive in various areas of the state.
Animals, are of course, at the top of this list.
But for one family, making sure their beloved pet dogs got out safely from the disastrous was not a negotiable idea.
Thankfully, rescue teams are in place and working tirelessly to save both humans and animals. The US Coast Guard is one such rescue group.
