30 DOGS ABANDONED DURING THE FLOOD WERE SAVED BY A FATHER AND A SON

Despite receiving flood warnings, residents of Brazoria, Texas, abandoned several family dogs in the pandemonium.
However, the father and younger brother of Redittor DUSTYHAM seized a chance to save them. The two animal enthusiasts, who had a boat between them, freed about 40 imprisoned dogs.

This was predicted a week or two in advance, according to DUSTYHAM, who added that “certain situations I can grasp.” Please use that one. Although neither of us can, it’s also conceivable that the owners were away and unable to retrieve their dogs.

Whatever the cause, someone intervened to save the poor puppies. According to DUSTYHAM, they all went to a temporary shelter set up by the local humane society. Until their owners pick them up or until they are adopted, the dogs will get care. If you want to help the shelter care for these dogs, please consider making a donation here.

Parts of central and southeast Texas were affected by destructive flash flooding prior to Memorial Day weekend in 2016. Since March 2015, a number of floods have affected Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Missouri, with this being the most recent of more than a dozen such incidents.

Up to 19 inches of rain fell in a region from just southeast of Austin, Texas, to the far northern suburbs of Houston on May 26–27, 2016, causing the most recent event to wash out highways and bridges.
