Oklahoma Tornado Dogs and Cats Find Homes at Hope After The Storm

A few weeks ago I share information about the OK Humane Society's Hope After The Storm adoption event.  Adopters from across the country were able to pre-register on their website for a chance to attend the event and see if they would fall in love with a new best friend.

60% of the animals displaced from the May tornadoes were reunited with their owners.  Most of those not returning to their homes were placed into foster homes after a 30 day waiting period.  When reunions slowed to a standstill, the OK Humane Society organized Hope After The Storm, a private adoption event on July 13.

Some of the dogs and cats were adopted by their foster families and the majority of all the refugee pets found homes during the event.  Those animals not adopted at the event will be cared for in their adoption program until the right family comes along for them.

Have an inside look at the Hope After The Storm adoption event in this video:


  1. That great 60%. Hope lots got adopted. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  2. 60% is a nice number but barely over half. How awful for those that did not find their owners!

  3. Too bad all of them weren't claimed by their owners. Hope the rest find good homes.

  4. Sweet! I'm so glad all these animals have been so well cared for. Rescue organizations like this were rare when I was growing up, so we have come a really long way these past decades. :)


Go ahead... bark at us!
