Louisiana flood rescue patrol ... Animals are included (reblogged)

When I mentioned the specialty Coffee water this morning 8/20/16 (http://dailycoffeenews.com/2016/08/02/aquiem-is-literally-water-for-coffee/) on Wendy's Coffeehouse, I also referenced helping with animals (if possible) in flood ravaged Louisiana.

This is the post I shared on my other blog sites. 

Big rescue efforts continue in flood devastated Louisiana. Efforts that include searching and recovering animals caught up in the chaos. FOX

Images from the devastation are striking. Including a photo of a soggy living room where the centerpiece is the kayak a woman used to save all of her animals. NBC

Posted on Facebook, Mike Anderson and Darrell Watson are helping, sharing their story and the view from water-logged LA. The Dodo

"Out of all the people we've rescued, 30 percent or so have had pets," he said. "The first question they ask is, 'Can I bring my pet?' And our answer is always: 'Absolutely!'"



Another rescue took an incredible turn when a woman pulled from her submerged car yelled at the rescuer to save her dog. The rescuer thought he might have missed the opportunity but dove and surfaced with the dog in tow. Fantastic! The Guardian



One of the positive results from Hurricane Katrina was including rescue response for animals:

"Hurricane Katrina changed the way that animals are treated during emergencies thanks to the passage of the Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards. In its approval, Congress compelled first responders to save pets just as they save their people."
