When disaster strikes, people aren't the only ones in danger. In August 2005, Tropical Storm Katrina formed over the Atlantic Ocean. Soon the storm became a huge hurricane headed for the Gulf Coast. Residents had to evacuate quickly. In most cases, they had no choice but to leave behind their pets. Would anyone come to the animals' rescue?
Look inside to meet the everyday heroes who found ways to save animals from Hurricane Katrina and the floods that followed. These brave men and women managed to rescue not only dogs and cats, but also farm and zoo animals such as horses, cows, alligators, and dolphins-sometimes even risking their own lives as they rushed in to help.
