Nichols isn’t the only person who rescued dogs from the flood waters.
Another dog in South Lumberton, North Carolina was rescued by two men who drove from Maine to help rescue animals, Huffington Post reported.
One was alone on a porch, soaked, with no license and a cut leash on her neck.
The dog was so thankful to her rescuers for saving her that she kept licking them.
The two men also delivered pet food to hotels where people evacuated with their pets, Huffington Post reported.
