Within hours of tornadoes that struck the Branson, Missouri area this past week, the Humane Society of Missouri Disaster Response Team was on site. The video below shows the horrible conditions they found and tells a bit about their animal rescue efforts.
Given the high anxiety levels of our pets when we took cover from the same storm, I find it hard to imagine what these newly homeless pets and their owners are going through.
The Humane Society of Missouri has been named by the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency as the lead animal welfare agency in response to disasters and other emergencies in Missouri. HSMO's Disaster Response Team is traned and experienced in all kinds of animal rescue situations including tornado rescue.
