Pets rescued from Oklahoma up for adoption at PAWS Chicago

You can adopt some of the dogs and cats that were rescued from shelters in Oklahoma after that devastating tornado.

After last week’s storms, pets that were separated from their owners began arriving to shelters in Oklahoma City.

Organizers say animals that were already at the shelter needed a new place to go, and that’s where PAWS Chicago stepped in.

In all, 51 dogs and cats were brought to Chicago from Oklahoma.

Adoptions were from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, at PAWS Chicago on Clybourn.

The pets that were left homeless will have to stay 30 days at the shelters in Oklahoma to wait to be claimed.

After that, they’ll be up for adoption as well.

    Its great that PAWS has rescued and helping these animals, but, in the newscast you did not show or mention the cats who were also rescued! Dogs are not the ONLY pets in our country, please remember the felines too! They also need homes, and there are double the number of cats needing homes in shelters versus dogs from my own shelter experience…You could’ve showed the 25 cats in their cages too, as you showed only the dogs from Oklahoma…..Give the cats equal time!
