I am a sucker for the four legged. All of my pets have been rescues. They rescued me. So I have been drawn to these amazing stories of pets that survived the Oklahoma tornado, and their actions. Here are two stories I felt compelled to pass along. I hope they touch your heart like they have mine.
And we can help the displaced pets in Oklahoma. Contact the Humane Society for more information. http://www.okhumane.org/
The dog, Susie, has since been returned to her rightful owner, Curtis, the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office reported in a Facebook post Wednesday evening.
“‘Susie’ and Curtis live about a 1/2 mile from where she was found by our deputy and Curtis has no idea why she stood guard of the victim whom he did not know,” the OCSO wrote. “It was an emotional reunion between ‘Susie’ and Curtis, one we were glad to have been a part of.”
The post concluded, “Curtis has asked that anyone who was touched by ‘Susie’s’ story to make a donation to the Central Oklahoma Humane Society to assist with shelter needs related to the storm.”
A mud-covered dog was discovered amid the rubble of the Moore, Okla., tornado. Authorities say the pup was standing guard over its deceased owner’s body.
The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office tweeted a photo of the scared, black dog, which was found alive in a pile of wreckage after a deadly EF-5 tornado hit Moore on May 20. At first it might have seemed like one more miracle, but once authorities found out why the pup had been sitting in that particular spot, the dog’s story became even more heart-wrenching.
On Tuesday, deputies learned the little dog was actually guarding the body of its owner, who had died as a result of the storm, Oklahoma’s KWTV noted.Share on Facebook
