As Texans by the thousands are rescued during Tropical Storm Harvey, striking images have emerged of evacuees with their beloved animals in tow, all making their way to safety.
Animals have provided comfort for those who have lost so much already, with long days of rebuilding ahead. There have also been some incredible rescues, like the good Samaritans who helped a woman save 21 dogs.
Some animals were not evacuated with their owners. The Humane Society of the United States is soliciting donations to care for animals lost and injured during the storm. Shelters in New Jersey are awaiting an airlift of more than 100 dogs being transferred from San Antonio to make room for storm-displaced animals.
