The violently destructive tornadoes that hit Oklahoma were devastating to more than just humans, but to the animals living in the area as well. The good news is that the Tri-County Humane Society of South Florida reached out to help.
Approximately 80 dogs and cats were brought to the South Florida area this week after a group drove out to the needy areas in Oklahoma. These heroes rescued animals from 5 different kill shelters, according to WPTV News Channel 5.
About 64 adult dogs and puppies and 16 cats were brought back to the area and are now looking for homes in South Florida. If the group could have saved more animals, they would have.
The beautiful animals saved from being put down in the Oklahoma shelters will now be given medical attention, food, shelter and love. We thank those in South Florida who drove across the country to save the victims of the tornadoes that horrified the area and changed many lives forever. Some lives were changed for the better; however because now they have a chance for a great life with a happy and healthy new family.
The animals rescued from the near death of being euthanized will be ready for adoption most likely during the first week in June. Please, if you can rescue and care for a loving animal, call the Tri-County Humane Society at (561)482-8110.
