Animal rescuer braves North Carolina floods to save stranded dogs

An animal rescue volunteer came to the aid of a number of dogs on September 18 that had been left stranded in the floods in North Carolina after Hurricane Florence.

Keith Benning, who works with the North Dakota-based Turtle Mountain Animal Rescue, filmed a number of dogs that had been left stranded on things like picnic tables, a car, and inside a house. Benning said, on September 18, that he had rescued "about 10 dogs so far.” The Turtle Mountain Animal Rescue said that they believed that Benning was near the Cape Fear River.

Turtle Mountain Animal Rescue also posted a photo showing one of the rescued dogs. They said the dog had been seen by a vet and was safe, dry, and “doing much better”.
