“They wouldn't let us get them out of the apartment. They just said we had to get out,” she said.
Carr said she rushed out without her two cats and a dog.
"If this would have gone on any longer I think they would have died. I know they got food in there, but no water,” she said.
Dodge County Emergency Management says last night, just the pets left behind in the building immediately impacted by the blow were rescued.
"Today, because we had so many residents who still had their pets, they weren't going to be in an affected building, but obviously everyone has been displaced for a few days, it's been hard on them, it's been hard on their pets,” said Amy Nehls with Dodge County Emergency Management.
Carr was so worried about her dog surviving, she pleaded with authorities.
"I had to cry to the Chief of Police yesterday to go in and get my dog," she said.
Now that all three of her pets are safe, she says it’s time to give them extra love and care.
