Pets are Included in the Massive Search and Rescue in South Florida

Our hearts go out to the people of south Florida after they experienced one of the worst hurricanes in Florida’s history. I’m sure many innocent pets are included in the amount of casualties that will continue to climb in the coming days. First Responders continue to save the lives of so many in south Florida. I get a sick feeling in my stomach when I hear that a family has been saved but their beloved pet was lost. Our pets are part of our family and I’ve heard of many who stayed behind because they didn’t want to leave their pets. Channel 5 News in south Florida issued this report on the progress of this massive rescue mission. Please continue to pray for the people and pets stranded in south Florida.

As hundreds of people are being rescued across Florida in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, pets are not being forgotten.

The U.S. Coast Guard documented a rescue of two people and three cats. They were stranded around Sanibel, Florida, on Thursday.

Sanibel is one of the hardest-hit areas. It’s connected to the mainland by a causeway, which was destroyed.

Pets are among the top priority in other parts of the state. In Orange County, officials guided people and their pets through floodwaters.

Prior to the storm, Florida Urgent Rescue said it evacuated 49 cats and dogs from rural Florida shelters. The goal was to make room for stray animals as a result of the storm.

Remembers pets are family!
