This little guy is safe after being rescued following the tornadoes that hit Arkansas last night, this Facebook thread reported.

The girl who found this dog would like his owner's to know he's being cared for and is safe. Her dad found him last night in all the craziness, after the little dog was almost hit by a car on two occasions.

He was found in the city and county of Vilonia, walking down the middle of the road after the tornado touched down.

If this is your dog, please contact Morgan Bolden at 501-428-5255.

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.
