Pets are always a concern when there's flooding. But in Denville, N.J., there are was a strange animal rescue Tuesday afternoon.

Workers from the Morris County Animal Rescue Team fished a goldfish out a street puddle.

A resident had spotted it and called in the rescue team.

Presumably, the goldfish was washed out of a backyard pond. It will be held for seven days and then put up for adoption.

Morris County is also offering to decontaminate oil-soaked pets, as well as board them at the police station for owners forced to motels with a "no pets" policy.
