Do you recognize this puppy? His (or her) Facebook thread is here.

This little guy was found in the aftermath of the deadly tornadoes that rolled through many communities in Arkansas on April 27. It's not definite he's a tornado survivor, but he's on the Facebook page with the dogs found.

If you recognize this baby, who appears quite content just taking a nap and being spoiled until his family is found, please reply to the Facebook thread above. Right now, he's currently at Vilonia Arkansas Satellite.

This Facebook group 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.

Examiner articles are unpublished after pets are reunited with family. This simplifies keeping up with the many pets still needing help finding their way home.
