NORMAN, Oklahoma -

Time is running out to find homes for more than a dozen pet cats that were displaced following the May tornadoes. 

Volunteers with Safe Haven Animal Rescue held a final adoption event at Petco in Norman Sunday afternoon for the last of the tornado cats.

"They are cats that were someone's pets," said Macy Schneeberger, a volunteer with the rescue. "I don't know if their owners just can't take them or just couldn't find them, but they are in need of a home."

Sixty cats were trapped and rescued from the rubble following the deadly tornado outbreak in May. The majority of those were either adopted or reunited with their owners. Now the final 15 are still waiting for a home.

"We have a few that are very traumatized still from the storm, and we are in need of some special homes for those guys," Schneeberger said.

Volunteers have ended the rescues and will be closing the shelter in two weeks, crunch time for the ones left behind.

"We need to find them homes, they are going to go to rescues out of state, if we can't and maybe go to other shelters where they won't have as much time that they have had with us," she said.

And if people want to help but not adopt, they can always foster.

"Fostering is one of the best things I ever did in my whole life," said Kathryn Small, who has fostered several of displaced cats since the tornadoes.

"It's just really nice because they're not in these cages anymore, they get to come home," Small said.

Around 15 cats are still available and with the adoption fee, they come micro chipped, spayed or neutered and with their shots up to date. The fee is $35 for adult cats and $50 for the kittens.

If you are interested in adopting a tornado cat, call (405) 463-1556 or email at SafeHavenAnimal@cox.net.
