Hood County Animal Control issues information on pets lost during tornado

Hood County Animal Control has already rounded up more than 200 animals from the areas hit hard by the tornadoes that blew through the county Wednesday, Sergeant Kelly McNab said. The number includes about 150 dogs and 20 cats along with birds, gerbils, lizards and even a rooster. Those missing a pet because of the tornadoes can go to 5845 Acton Circle, where they are being housed and cared for, McNab said, or go to the Animal Control facility, 240 Bray St. in person. To claim a pet, you must describe the animal in detail or show a photo, and you must show your driver’s license. McNab emphasized that far more than enough pet food and other supplies have already been donated. However, donations of cash or checks can be taken to the Animal Control facility. Or, checks made out to Hood County Animal Control can be mailed to: Hood County Sheriff’s Office, care of Animal Control, 400 Deputy Larry Miller Dr., Granbury, TX 76048. Also, the pets that are not claimed immediately will eventually be posted with a photo on a pet rescue website, www.petfinder.com.
