Do you know this dog? Her Facebook thread is here.
This older girl was found in Cleburne County, which is close to the worst damaged areas from the April 27 Arkansas tornadoes. It's possible she wandered this far from home after the storms.
She was found in the Hexton Drive area of Heber Springs. A kind woman found her very dehydrated, and thinks she is possibly an inside pet. The lady caring for her has contacted lost and founds.
This area is only an hour away from Vilonia. One dog from Mayflower has already been found in an area that was a good distance from its home.
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.
If the thread in the first paragraph doesn't take you to the lost or found pet, please check the albums on the group page.
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Examiner articles are unpublished after pets are reunited with family.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
