Follow Up with the Panther Pet Hospital

We thought we’d catch up with the Panther Pet Hospital in Petal, MS to see how they are doing!

 

Storm Assist donated $500 to the Pet Hospital after the Hattiesburg tornado on February 10th, 2013.   The Hospital was generously donating their services and boarding pets displaced from their owners in the aftermath of the tornado.

 

 “We ended up using the money to help spay/neuter/ and microchip the storm pets that were not claimed. Some of them were adopted locally and some are going up north with Rescue Roadtrips!”

 

Check out the photos below of “Randy” and “Annie,” two storm dogs from Hattiesburg – both going Northbound, eager to see what loving families might be adopting them with Rescue Roadtrips!

We checked up on their Facebook page as well and found that several owners (some pictured below) have been successfully reunited with their lost pets!

Their Facebook page has been instrumental, as well as a news story that was run on WDAM, a local news channel.

Storm Assist sent a press release to the local news channels and were happy to see that WDAM was able to cover the donation. The story ran actually brought this dog, “Princess” back together with her owner! (check out the video below, starting at :36 seconds for the story!)

 

“Princess was reunited with her family today. They saw her picture on WDAM. Her home was destroyed by the tornado.”
