Site holding dogs from tornado areas to be open Saturday, Sunday

Those missing a dog because of the tornadoes Wednesday can go to NewScope Marketing, 5845 Acton Circle, just off Industrial Avenue in Granbury, where the canines that have been found by Hood County Animal Control are being housed and cared for, Animal Control Sergeant Kelly McNab said. Or, go to the Animal Control facility, 240 Bray St., Monday through Friday. The Acton Circle location will be open for that purpose 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday (May 18) and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday, McNab said. More than 200 animals were rounded up from the areas hit by the tornadoes, the sergeant said. The overall number includes about 150 dogs and 20 cats plus birds, gerbils, lizards and even a rooster. As of Friday afternoon, 27 of the 62 dogs taken to the Acton Circle location (which has only dogs) had been reunited with their owners. To claim a pet, you will need to describe the animal in detail and/or show a photo, and show your driver’s license. McNab said more than enough pet food and supplies have been donated. However, donations of cash or checks can be taken to the Animal Control facility or checks can be made out to Hood County Animal Control and mailed to: Hood County Sheriff’s Office, care of Animal Control, 400 Deputy Larry Miller Dr., Granbury, TX 76048. The pets not claimed will eventually be posted with a photo on a pet rescue website,
