Earlier this week, an animal shelter in Jacksboro, Texas, was destroyed by a tornado that hit the area. On Tuesday, the person who used to run the Jacksboro Animal Shelter reached out via social media to share the devastating news, writing:
Most people that know me has known for years I ran the Jacksboro Animal Shelter and always stayed involved with them even after I retired. Now I am president of the Friends of the Jacksboro Animal Shelter. As many of you know Jacksboro was hit by a devastating tornado Monday afternoon we were fortunate no one lost their lives.
But our Shelter took a direct hit.
Amazingly, despite the extensive damage, the animals at the shelter facility survived. And one blind cat was rescued from the rubble. The Denton Animal Support Foundation writes:
Rescue workers found this cat in the rubble. They have named him Nado… as in “tornado” He will be checked out by a vet and brought to the Springtown Animal Shelter or to a foster home.
The animals from the shelter have been relocated, but funds are needed to help rebuild.
