As flood waters rose across Baton Rouge and the surrounding area, it wasn't just people who needed rescuing. Thousands of pets, from dogs and cats to horses, were rescued from Louisiana flood waters. What's happening to pets stranded in the Louisiana Flood? Some are still in shelters with their families and others have been evacuated to other areas to be adopted to new families.

The way pets are treated during a disaster is mandated by a law passed by Congress after Hurricane Katrina called the "Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards," according to the Times-Picayune. The law mandates that rescuers make the same effort to save pets in an emergency as they would to save a person.
