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.
