Pets Reunited with Owners In Joplin

Note: Our comment section is still not working, but we're trying our best to get it repaired. Please feel free to leave your comments on our Facebook page-see very top of sidebar...

We've all heard about the devastation wreaked by a tornado that smacked Joplin, Missouri, a week ago, leaving over 135 people dead, and many more injured or missing. Amid this destruction, their have been signs of hope, and in fact joy, as many people whose homes had been destroyed, were reunited with their four-legged family members after days of searching. The director of the Joplin Animal Shelter reported that since the storm last Sunday evening, 370 animals had been brought into the shelter, and 98 of those have been reunited with their families as of this past Thursday.  Read the full article from CNN Online here:

We also thought we'd share this CNN video of the Joplin Shelter and some of the workers and volunteers who are dedicated their time to help these scared and injured pets be reunited with their owners. One of the workers featured had just lost her step-daughter in the tornado and was helping at the shelter to focus on something other than her grief. "Amazing" is all we can say about these brave people.

In addition to our sympathies and positive vibes, we 'd like to mention how and where you can help, if you're so inclined - the ASPCA is curently on the scene in Joplin and need all the help they can get. This link provides ways to donate: www.aspca.org/Blog/joplin-update.aspx

Looks like you're good to comment again. I understand the desire to keep it the way it was before, as that was my preference, too, but I got frustrated over readers being frustrated at not being able to comment, so I changed it.

I think Blogger must have something that's affecting some of us who have custom designs.
