FILE - In this Oct. 30, 2012, file photo, Brian Hajeski carries a dog named Junior as he and a group of men rescue neighbors in Brick, N.J., in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.

The storm drove New York and New Jersey residents from their homes, destroyed belongings and forced them to find shelter for themselves - and for their pets, said owners, who recounted tales of a dog swimming through flooded streets and extra food left behind for a tarantula no one was willing to take in.
