After Harvey, heartwarming rescues of dogs, cats and other animals

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/animal-rescues-hurricane-storm-harvey-houston_us_59a67078e4b063ae34d9e82b





I wanted to find whoever chained up this dog and treat them like a liberal protester at a Trump rally, but it turns out the photographer rescued the poor dog.


There are videos and tweets at above link

It's a slideshow with 47 photos and some ads mixed in.

I saw a video somewhere of a family of young kittens swimming to a boat that picked them up. There was a lot of meowing.

3. Liberal protesters get beat up at Trump rallies

if you found someone had tied up a dog to die in the flood, wouldn't you want to unleash your frustrations upon that person?

7. Bingo - and I wouldn't be shy about it, either.

I can be mean where helpless critters are concerned!

4. Was this the kitten vid? It was actually in 2015.

On the Warrior River in Alabama in 2015.

This one, from the Harvey tragedy, was great too.

5. Yup, that's the one

I had assumed it was from this year's flooding, but I guess some asshole had just thrown them out.

6. That was the way it shook down.

My daughter lives in Birmingham and fishes on the Warrior - someone dumped them. These good-ole-boys picked them up and took them to safety.
