Dogs, locked away in a kennel in the midst of rapidly rising floodwaters, nearly drowned in North Carolina. According to WCNC  News, six dogs were locked inside of a chain link kennel in a flooded area of Leland.

The rescue

On Sunday, Good Samaritans discovered the frightening situation after hearing the frightened dogs howling. A man waded through deep water to access the kennel door and free the trapped dogs from the kennel – video shows the pups being coaxed to dry land.

No information has been provided about who the dogs belong to, or how long they had been locked in the kennel.

Remnants of hurricane Florence continue to plague the area with non-stop rains and flooding. According to the Washington Post, at least 17 people in the Carolinas have died from the widespread storm.

Careless and/or irresponsible pet owners are far too abundant. In Texas, a pit bull, left chained to a tree, was in danger in rising tide water. If not for a compassionate police officer, the dog would have likely drowned.

    What is wrong with people?? If you are stupid and/or careless enough to leave your pets in this kind of danger should you really own an animal?? Really, think about it. Thank you to the kind people who rescued these poor dogs and all the helpless animals. Shame on the “owners”.

    Probably hunting dogs that the vile, uncaring so-called owner could care less about if they died. Would just get more.When found, this person(s) should be arrested and charged.

    What is wrong with people, they care so little about their dogs! Bless the rescuers of these precious babies, I hope charges are brought against the owner and they are never allowed to own a dog again!
