After the disgraceful spectacle put on by FEMA during Katrina many states and the Feds adopted procedures and regulations to ensure pets and owners were evaced. It was tearing peopke up to see owners slogging through chin deep water with a pet just to be told the pet had to stay. Owners were loaded onto planes while pets were left jumping and barking, abandoned on the LZ.
Many owners refused to leave if their pets couldn’t go and shelters wouldn’t take them in. We have stories of owners eight years after Katrina finding pets they were forced to leave behind, they never gave up looking.

Ill treatment of animals is punished, though nowhere near enough or heavily enough in many jurisdictions. But certainly an animal abuser is not considered a desirable member of the community.
On the other hand, dogs are singled out basically by two entities–China and Islam–for ill treatment and way beyond….
Afghanistan: Muslims enraged at US leaflet calling Taliban “dogs” and depicting Islamic confession of faith
September 6, 2017 by Robert Spencer
“Yes, of course, they’re not enraged at jihad terrorism, they’re enraged that the leaflet calls the Taliban dogs. Why? Because Islam hates dogs: ‘Once Gabriel promised the Prophet (that he would visit him, but Gabriel did not come) and later on he said, ‘We, angels, do not enter a house which contains a picture or a dog.’” — Sahih Bukhari 4.54.50
