UPDATE: Helping Animals Affected by TN Tornadoes

In case some of you don't read comments, I wanted to make sure that I shared this information with you. I got a really nice comment from Mr. John LoDuca from American Pet Cross about how the animals are being helped after the Tennessee tornadoes last week and requests for items needed:
Hi Sheryl,

I'm with the American Pet Cross and this week we've been collaborating with American Red Cross, the Executive Director from your state's Humane Society, the State Vet, DART volunteers and Purina to help out in your state.

As you'd mentioned, kennels, leashes and all other pet equipment and materials (even blankets) will be needed for the folks who have lost everything....

But what may come as a surprise to some of your readers is that what's of dire urgency is that we need hey and land to house all the displaced cattle right now. It's actually a big problem.

Please help us spread the word, we need some help with hey and land to house cattle.

PS Came across your blog and really like it!!!
