This sweet dog is missing in Arkansas following the devastating tornadoes that ripped through the area on April 27. This Facebook thread tells the story.
William Winn, a friend of Jerry Robinson and Jamye Collins, is searching for their dog Maxi. Jerry and Jamye were hit on By-Pass 64 near South Coker Road, and now their belongings and Maxi are missing.
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.
If a pet is reunited with its owner, please post the story I've done on my Facebook wall saying we were successful. The Examiner article will be removed at that time so focus remains on missing pets.
