LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The historic flooding in Louisiana wreaked havoc across the state, but a Louisville woman found that it was also a disaster for animal shelters.

Angel Burke said shelters in Louisiana had trouble making room for all the new dogs that were being brought in, meaning they were having to put down a lot of animals. So she went down to Louisiana on a mission to rescue as many as she could. However, she said getting the animals out of the state was a challenge, and she nearly had to give up.

"I vowed, I'm not leaving Louisiana without these dogs," Burke said. "I had no choice so I came home, but I came right back."
