The Jacksonville (FL) Sheriff's Office has been busy rescuing people affected by Hurricane Irma, as well as people's pets.

On Facebook, the agency posted a photo and playful caption of one such rescue:

This is just one of the many water rescues by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Dive Team! Sgt. Hartley writes:

"Ok, best for last. This was our first rescue yesterday. Lady told us she wasn't leaving without her kids. Officer Hux, the lady, her two adult sons, and I waded through waist deep water (also throughout her house on the river) for 200-300 yards to get these guys to safety.

If I remember correctly 8 dogs and 2 cats. Dogs seemed very thankful. Cats didn't care."
