Since a lethal tornado struck Kentucky on Friday, The HSUS's Animal Rescue Team swooped into hard-hit Laurel County to help residents and their pets regroup.

The HSUS is working with local officials to help animals who are injured or distressed, and to set up an emergency shelter for animals who have been displaced because of the storm. Our field responders will travel the community to provide much-needed pet food and to let residents know we can care for animals in need.

Families who have lost everything else will be able to bring their pets to our shelter while they put their lives back together, knowing that their dog or cat will be in good hands.

The HSUS's responders worked with local rescue group Fur Ever Friends on Sunday to take in a dozen dogs who were displaced by the powerful storms.
