The animals are usually relieved when volunteers arrive, but there are challenges.
"Within the first week after the storm they're generally excited to see somebody. If they've been treading water for a long time or stuck in a tree or something along those lines they are going to be a little bit fearful," said Buege.
She said there's a big stray population in Houston so that might be tricky.
"When you have some of those dogs who potentially are feral they may not be quite as happy to see us."
The group's goal is to rescue animals and reunite them with their families. They have a chip reader to help with the process. If the group can't find the owners and Animal Control can't take them in they will bring animals back to southeast Wisconsin and ask for people to foster.
The group will also use social media to reunite pets and families. If you're interested in fostering or adopting email the group at Obahrescue2017@gmail.com.
