1010 WINS  — Hundreds of animals have been rescued following Hurricane Harvey and the massive flooding in its wake.

Eighty dogs and cats traveled on a Southwest Airlines flight to San Diego to the Helen Woodward Animal Center to relieve some of the overcrowding at the Texas shelters.

The 1,400 miles were a worthy journey to rescue the furry friends.

Volunteers, flight attendants and the pilot were more than happy to help the animals and even give them some extra snuggles.

It was a great day for man and man’s best friend alike!
