5th Anniversary Series: Mother’s Day tornado hits local rescue

By on September 29, 2018

In celebration of our 5th birthday, we’re highlighting five stories this month that speak to who we are as a resource for pet lovers and opportunity for advertisers. Please enjoy this and upcoming posts in our Fifth Anniversary Series, brought to you by one of our wonderful community partners- ComeSitStay.

The final article in our 5th Anniversary Series sponsored by ComeSitStay includes the story of a Mother’s Day tornado that hit Beaver Crossing’s Huskers Hope Dachshund Rescue. It’s the first and most visited example of our breaking news coverage of the pet community.

Earlier this year, when a Tulsa, Oklahoma shelter’s staff couldn’t bear the idea that over 50 of its animals would be euthanized because no space was available, it reached out to regional rescues, including a handful from in and around Omaha, for help. And when Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue, Little White Dog Rescue, and others agreed these deaths should be avoided, a plan was put in place and executed. Thanks to those groups, the Tulsa dogs were transported here and scooped up by life-saving humane organizations.
