True to its calling, the Animal Planet television network is focusing on the four-legged victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The network is airing a special Saturday night called "Surviving Harvey: Animals After the Storm." It will show stories of animals rescued from the storm that hit Texas, featuring the rescuers and volunteers who concentrated on making sure pets were safe.
