Donation to Hattiesburg in Tornado Aftermath
Storm Assist has contributed its second donation! $500 was delivered to the Panther Pet Hospital in Petal, MS yesterday.
Panther Pet Hospital is graciously taking in any pets found or lost after the tornado, and are also offering boarding at a reduced rate. With this donation they will be able to help families afford to board pets while recovering from this natural disaster, as well as provide any lost pets with food, shelter and love while they wait to be reunited with their owners.
These discounted and charitable services are in response to an EF4 tornado that scraped through Hattiesburg, MS on Sunday, February 10th, 2013.
A post on the Panther Pet Hospital Facebook page sums up the level of destruction, “We feel very blessed to have survived the storm. Houses across the street are destroyed.”
Anyone looking for a lost animal can visit the Panther Pet Hospital Facebook page where they are posting photos of the animals in hopes of reconnecting them with their owners.
As we head into spring, Storm Assist will be making more donations to help out victims of natural disasters. Since we are a 100% volunteer organization, we depend on your support and help to give back to those affected.
