Heroic volunteers rescued six dogs which had been abandoned in a locked cage in North Carolina during Hurricane Florence.

The dogs nearly drowned in rising flood waters before rescuers got to them. They were found barking, standing on their hind legs up against the front of the cage, desperate to get out of the cage.

The animals were found at a property in Leland, North Carolina, where the owners had abandoned the house and the animals in order to escape Hurricane Florence.

You can watch the rescue here:

Journalist Marcus DiPaola posted to Twitter:

Rescued six dogs in Leland, NC, after the owner LEFT THEM locked in an outdoor cage that filled with flood water that was rapidly rising.

We got them out, but by the time we left, the water was so high that they would have drowned. BRING YOUR PETS WITH YOU!

The video shows the dogs whimpering as volunteer rescuer Ryan Nichols of Longview, Texas, wades through the water to reach them.

As soon as he frees the animals, all the dogs swim out towards the volunteers.
