(Vilonia) (AP) – The deadly tornado that tore its way through a central Arkansas community earlier this week also injured or displaced dozens of pets.
Vilonia Animal Clinic office manager Melanie Gentry says nearly 50 pets have been taken to the facility – the only veterinary clinic in the city- for either shelter or treatment. Animals that have been taken into the clinic include dogs, cats and two goats.
Three animals – two dogs and one goat – have died from their injuries.
A Lost and Found Pets Facebook page created by stay-at-home mom Melinda Davis is working to reconnect lost pets with their owners. It has almost 4,000 likes since it was made on Sunday when the twister hit.
