The Mayfield-Graves . County Animal Shelter Todd Blevins, in partnership with national and state advocates, has saved more than 50 animals as of December 15, said Todd Blevins, with the Humane Society of the United States.
The search and rescue team said on December 16 that they found a small tabby cat in the rubble of a Mayfield residential area.
The sounds of chainsaws and cleaning can make most pets, like tabby cats, nervous. However, the team describes this cat as curious and hungry enough to get a better look at its condition.
After gaining the cat’s trust, the tabby was taken back to the Mayfield-Graves County Animal Shelter, where he was tested for a microchip.
The shelter has had a steady stream of individuals and families hoping to be reunited with their pets.
“It is moments like these that remind us how precious the relationship between humans and animals is,” Kitty Block said, president and chief executive officer of the Humane Society of the United States. “Pets are truly members of the family and we are doing all we can to ensure these precious individuals get home safely.”
Officials are asking anyone who finds pets to bring them to their local animal shelter so they have the best chance of being reunited with their families.
Tornado and hurricane survivors are encouraged to visit shelters in their city to file lost pet reports.
