(STORYFUL) - An animal rescue volunteer came to the rescue for a number of dogs in the wake of Hurricane Florence, which left massive flooding across North Carolina.
Keith Benning, who works with the North Dakota-based Turtle Mountain Animal Rescue, posted a video of the rescues.
Video shows the dogs left stranded on objects like picnic tables and cars. At the time of posting, Benning said he rescued about 10 dogs.
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.”

We’re just staring to hear from Keith. Cell service is sketchy but we’ll share with you what little we know. We believe he’s near the Cape Fear river which is set to crest tomorrow at 61.5 feet, which is 46 Feet higher than where it was two weeks ago. We don’t know all the circumstances of these rescues, please hold any criticisms of (people leaving their pets behind) it is likely there is more going on that just what you are seeing. Thank you. The team at TMAR couldn’t be prouder to be able to support Keith on this rescue mission.

Hurricane Florence Animal Rescue Update: “The problem is flooding everywhere and the water is rising. It took us 4 hours to get to a place that we were within 15 miles of. Boats are great but the roads are washed out followed by 10 miles of pavement, then it’s a washed out road, ten miles of pavement, then another washed out road, then flood. The biggest problem with rescuing anything here is getting to it. We had choppers over us all day rescuing people. We’re in rocky point. We’ve rescued about 10 dogs so far.” -Keith Thanks for following.
