Hurricane Irma: Florida deputy, corrections sergeant die in head-on crash during storm

Sauve said once winds reach a sustained 35 miles per hour, no officers will be permitted to rescue animals.

Both Sauve and Palm Beach County's state prosecutor, Dave Aronberg say that they intend to file felony prosecutions against those who may have left these dogs out in the storm.

Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control officers rescued 49 dogs in the days before the storm hit, all of whom were left outside to fend for themselves.

Animal Care and Control also took in another 40 cats and dogs who were relinquished by their owners.

She added: 'It's unconscionable.

Dogs left in pens and parked cars, and even dogs chained up or tethered to trees, have been among the hundreds of abandoned animals rescued by Palm Beach County Animal Care in the lead-up to and wake of Hurricane Irma.

A Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office deputy and Florida Department of Corrections sergeant were killed when their vehicles crashed head-on while working in the Hurricane Irma evacuation zone, officials said.

Sauve said officials will use every paper trail imaginable to track down animal cruelty offenders. "We will find you, and we will prosecute you".

Not only that, if there's a record of you surrendering ownership of a pet, animal adoption agencies may hold that against you if ever want another.

Nearby Naples Zoo secured all of its animals before being battered by Hurricane Irma and reported they were all safe in the aftermath.

As Hurricane Irma continues to wreak havoc on the cities of Florida, one thing that is on many people's minds are the animals.
