image for Noah’s Ark except it’s a school bus: Truck driver rescues 64 dogs and cats from floods of Hurricane Florence

In the last week, Alsup and his bus have rescued 53 dogs and 11 cats from South Carolina shelters that were in Florence’s treacherous path, as first reported by the Greenville News.

“I’m like, look, these are lives too,” Alsup told The Washington Post during his Waffle House stop.

“Animals — especially shelter pets — they always have to take the back seat of the bus.

If I have to I’ll pay for all the fuel, or even a boat, to get these dogs out of there.”.

He has since helped with rescues during Hurricanes Irma and Maria (no bus for the latter; he was feeding horses) and now during Florence.

Last Monday, when Alsup began his latest rescues, the kennels in his vehicle were stacked from floor to ceiling.

From there, Alsup said the remaining dogs and cats went off to vacant shelters across the country. »
