RIP little ones.

post #1 of 17

You may have heard about the bad flooding that the Midwest has been getting lately. Some of the areas around me have been pretty hard hit already and the rivers are still rising.

Unfortunately, Piedmont Missouri suffered lots of flash flooding and the animal rescue there was completely flooded. The water came up so fast that they were only able to save nine dogs and none of the cats.

RIP little ones, I'm sorry you didn't get the chance to find your family. Now you can run free at the Bridge, there are no cages up there you know. .

That's a really good point. I know one of the workers personally and she was completely devastated. Many of them had damage to their homes too ( and some of them lost their homes) but they were all much more distraught at the loss of the animals then the loss of their own personal belongings. I'm sure they could all use some good vibes to get through this very difficult time. . . I actually called my friend to volunteer to foster if need be and thats when I found out that all of the cats were lost. I can't really take in any dogs, but I might be taking in a few of the small animals that were saved.

To all the volunteers and workers

One of these days I will be able to read some thing like this and not cry - apparently today isn't going to be it - my heart goes out to the workers and to those animals who were lost in this tragedy

I'm not sure exactly but I did find out some good news. I first talked to her right after it all happened and it seems she had been misinformed. They were able to save about twenty of the cats and those cats are now in a rescue around here and they are looking for foster homes. I just sent the woman in charge an email to find out if there is anything I can do.

I pray those who lost their lives will be playing with my sweet Baby G over the bridge.

I see on the news that a woman trying to evacuate her house with her pets got caught in the fast-rising waters. She and her mother were rescued, but 3 cats, 3 dogs, and all her chickens were drowned. Only her Saint Bernard made it.

There will be many furbabies drying their fur at the Rainbow Bridge in the coming days.

Unfortunately you are more right then you could know about that. . . On a happier note though, I do have a friend on another forum who is up to her eyeballs right now in rescued pets so there are many that have been saved too.

To all the animals joining the RB brigade, have fun and make sure you find a big lovable puppy up there named Bear.
