TULSA, Oklahoma -- The devastation that hit Joplin Sunday has affected hundreds of people and many of their pets as well.

The Owasso Humane Society and the SAHO Animal Hospital have teamed up to collect supplies for the Joplin Humane Society which is being inedited with lost pets.

Inspired by the rescue of Joplin the kitty by an Collinsville K-9 Unit in Joplin, the OHS and the SAHO hope animal lovers will come to the aid of the hundreds of pets placed in an emergency shelter.
