Tornado pets still looking for a home

Posted: Updated:
VILONIA (KATV) – Animal shelters have seen hundreds of pets since last month’s killer tornado, and those pets are still looking for homes.

The Vilonia Animal Clinic says around 80% of lost pets were reunited with their owners or given homes since the week after the storm.

Pictures of the remaining pets are now on Facebook pages looking for good homes.

Tabitha Black started a Facebook group and that’s responsible for housing three tornado pets. Black helped rescue the Lavergne’s dog after they were killed in their Vilonia home.

She also brought some happiness to the Hunter family after their son Jeffery died in the tornado by finding their cat Olivia.

“I had to try really hard not to cry, it was pretty amazing”, said a joyful Black as she described reuniting Olivia with the Hunter family.

According the Vilonia Animal Clinic, the amount of pets left isn’t anywhere near what it once was after the tornado hit, but it’s still overwhelming for Black.

Many have taken to Facebook to reach out to the online world to help find tornado pets with their home.

All of the following Facebook groups have countless tornado pets that are looking for a good home:
