HOUSTON, TX -- Day after day we’ve seen the images of our lone star state being hit with non-stop downpours! Luckily, forecasters say we're in for a bit of a break soon.

But when a flood does hit, you grab your keys, wallet, and food right? Well, what about your pets? What about dogs, cats or any other animal? Can't forget about them!

"We have a number of animals out there that are suffering, these floods are hard on cattle and horses, and dogs and wildlife too," said Bob Herbert, the Ft. Bend County Judge.

Well fear no more furry friends; Texas has got your back! Volunteers from Texas A & M are going back into neighborhoods hardest hit by flood waters looking for stranded animals.

"Texas A & M has sent us a vet team with four veterinarians and several technicians, and a lot of equipment," said Herbert.

It just goes to show that with a plan in place, you can bet we're giving all animals a chance for survival.
