Apart from humans and their respective properties, flooding also affects animals, especially house pets.

News9.com shared the story of a woman who rescued house pets during a flooding incident.

“Troopers and lawmen did what they could to help, but could not convince Pamela not to go back in the water. Her husband says besides dogs, they had several ducks and chickens they were raising. But he fears most of them died in the raging floodwaters.”
