However, it still hasn't been able to mar the spirit of humanity. A woman named Sunitha from Thrissur refused to evacuate her home in the flood-hit state because she did not want to leave behind her 25 dogs, AFP reported.

Sunitha "sent back volunteers and rescue officials because they said they could not evacuate her dogs," Sally Varma of Humane Society International told AFP.

Later, Sunitha, her husband and all her dogs were rescued and brought to a shelter.
