Hurricane Harvey had a severe impact on thousands upon thousands of people and animals living in Texas after making landfall near the end of August.

The floods that Harvey caused in parts of Texas have caused devastation and loss, but an uncountable number of individuals have stepped up to the plate to help those negatively impacted by this disaster.

Let’s renew our faith in humanity with these awe inspiring pictures of people putting their lives on the line to save precious livestock from drowning in floodwaters.
