A Chihuahua/Chihuahua mix is safe after the Arkansas tornadoes that devastated many communities on April 27. This Facebook thread tells the story.
Just sweet dog was found in Vilonia near Beryl Rd. He's been well cared for, but is very scared right now. This boy is wearing a red collar without tags. He's neutered but not micro-chipped.
He has been taken to Faulkner County SPCA.
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 if at all possible. 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.
