This Facebook group page is assisting, with information on rescue groups, where to have pets scanned or treated and other up to date information. Residents who find an animal are asked to hold onto it until it's owner is located.
Please leave a phone number where you can be reached. Don't depend on people being able to reach you on Facebook.
Also remember to be very careful who you release a "found" pet to. Sadly, in other disasters, people have taken advantage of the situation and taken custody of pets that did not belong to them.
People who have lost everything don't need to deal with nefarious folks also.. These disasters bring out people who scam, so please beware.
Examiner articles are unpublished after pets are reunited with family. This simplifies keeping up with the many pets still needing help finding their way home.
