As Texas residents scrambled to evacuate and leave the comfort of their homes in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, many were left with no other option other than to leave their beloved animals behind. Other pets became frightened, running from their homes as a natural instinct to escape and find shelter. The hurricane, which at its peak was a Category 4 storm, made landfall in Texas on Friday night. The last hurricane to make landfall in the state was Hurricane Ike in 2008.
