More than 1,000 homes have been destroyed by the deadly tornadoes that ripped through Kentucky and seven other states. Dozens of people have been injured, have died, or are still unaccounted for.
Humans are not the only victims. Countless companion animals and wildlife who survived the tornadoes are also likely injured or lost, waiting for the help that they desperately need.
PETA will always be there for animals affected by natural disasters. That’s why we sent a donation to the Mayfield-Graves County Animal Shelter in Mayfield, Kentucky. Thankfully, the shelter wasn’t destroyed, and employees and volunteers are assisting with efforts to reunite lost animals with their guardians.
PETA is grateful to the shelter and is proud to support its compassionate efforts to help as many animals who were affected by the storms as possible.
PETA’s Global Compassion Fund makes our disaster-relief efforts possible. This unique fund helps us support a network of committed local groups that are saving lives and caring for animals who might otherwise be abandoned, abused, or left to suffer without help. Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to support this vital resource today.Support PETA’s Global Compassion Fund
