Volunteers help rescue sheltered pets from flooded waters

Volunteers spent Saturday evening scrambling to rescue animals from rising waters.

The Franklin County Humane Society is flooding, and with no sign of the storms letting up, there is now the potential for it to get worse.

Trudi Johnson, staff and shelter volunteers decided to move 117 dogs and cats to higher ground. They decided the cats were safe at the shelter, but the dogs had to move fast. They took them by the bus load to a temporary shelter across town, where they'll have to stay until waters subside.
