    It's not your typical animal rescue -- a goldfish was picked up from the flooded streets of Denville, NJ Tuesday afternoon. (Published Tuesday, Aug. 30, 2011)

    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.
