Do you recognize this dog? He was found on Shultz Street in Vilonia in the aftermath of the deadly tornado that devastated Arkansas April 27. This Facebook thread has his story.

This tri-color male is around 63 pounds. The staff at Vilonia Animal Clinic believe he's about a year old. This big guy is being treated for his injuries, which are not life-threatening.

Vilonia says he does have a foster home ready to go to once he's well enough. Please contact Vilonia Animal Clinic at 501-796-8400 with any information.

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.
