The other storm victims - reuniting lost pets with their owners
CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -
Since the devastating storms that hit the Tri-State on March 2, cases of lost and found pets have been springing up.
The Clermont County animal shelter currently has two dogs, found near Point Pleasant and Bethel, that it hopes to reunite with their owners. There is also a Facebook page that has been created to help families looking for their pets. For the link to the lost and found pets on Facebook, click here.
FOX19 spoke with Clermont County Chief Animal Control Officer Debra Wood on Monday, and she introduced us to Dorothy and Tornado. She described Dorothy as a "very friendly" coonhound mix, approximately 2 years old, spayed, with a short tail, and appears she's been well taken care of, but had no tags. Dorothy was found on Route 52 in Point Pleasant Friday March 2nd, just hours after the storms hit. She was lost and alone. Now Officer Wood is hoping her family will come forward to claim her.
Tornado was found the Sunday after the storms, near Bethel. Tornado was adopted on Wednesday by the woman who found him and has renamed him Ozzie. Dorothy has drawn calls from several families interested in adopting her as no owner has claimed her yet. The Clermont County Animal Shelter expects her to be adopted soon.
For more information on these dogs, and plenty of others at the shelter who need loving homes, contact the Clermont County Animal Shelter at (513) 732-8854.
