PAWS Helps Animals from Joplin Tornado

Jul01

Mousebreath photo On May 22, 2011, an F5 tornado struck Joplin, Missouri, and the whirlwind of destruction ultimately resulted in 150 deaths, destroyed many more homes and livelihoods, and left hundreds of animals displaced and homeless. In response, animal welfare organizations across the country have been mobilizing to help find new homes for all the animals who could not be reunited with their families.

PAWS has teamed up with NOAH and the Joplin ASPCA to transfer more than 50 cats and kittens from Joplin, Missouri to Washington state in order to place these cats into new homes. Stay tuned for pictures, video, and news coverage of this moving story of people coming together to help animals across our nation.
