Unlike Hurricane Katrina, there has been a concerted effort to save animals along with people in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. As many coastal residents evacuated ahead of the storm, they brought their pets with them to shelters. And, for those trapped in their homes by the floodwaters, their pets are being rescued along with them. This is in stark contrast to the Katrina debacle, when not only were animals refused entry into shelters, the Coast Guard and other rescue personnel forced people to leave their pets behind.
