YouTube download / AP video / (14 Sep 2018) As floodwaters rise across southwest North Carolina, some residents are volunteering to perform animal rescues by boat in flooded neighborhoods.

But scores of volunteers are doing their part to rescue man's best friends by way of boats as shown in the Associated Press video.
