HELP: Pets In Need After U.S. Tornado Outbreak

(EMERGENCY ANIMAL RESCUE) Early last week, a ferocious storm system tore through Central and Southern U.S., killing at least 38 people and destroying hundreds of homes across six states. For three days, dozens of tornadoes and widespread flooding with hurricane force winds moved through parts of the Plains, Midwest, and South. Arkansas and Mississippi were among the hardest hit states. Amid tornado recovery and search and rescue efforts to ensure human safety, animal rescue operations are ongoing. Several agencies are lending their services to help out however they can—whether by bringing in search dogs, providing food assistance and veterinary services for lost and/or injured animals, or reuniting families with their four-legged loved ones. — Global Animal

Your Donations Give Oklahoma Pets Second Chance

(ACTIVISM) Earlier this month, Global Animal Foundation sent $2,000 to organizations working on the ground in Oklahoma to help animals in need following the devastating May tornadoes. However, while the Oklahoma City Animal Care and Control Center (OKCACC) almost reached capacity after the devastation, many of the animals already in shelters faced risk of euthanasia to make room for pets who had gone missing since the storms. In coordination with Animal Care and Control, volunteers from no-kill shelters across the country personally drove hundreds of miles to take in pets who had already been surrendered to Animal Care & Control, or abandoned, thus freeing up shelter space for displaced pets and giving the pre-existing shelter animals a second chance at life.
