The tornado (and a Wal-Mart semi truck) tore through the house of Tabitha's brother, along with 8,000 other homes.
Inspired to help, Tabitha and family started doing volunteer work in Joplin at a donation center.
Tabitha saw help pouring in for the people and pets of the city--but what about later? What happens to the lost, abandoned or needy animals after a year--two years, more? Shelters are overwhelmed daily,and seriously lack funding. Tabitha wanted to find an ongoing way to help the needy, scared and suffering animals find hope and help.
The tornado, and our humble beginnings
Shown here are some photos of the tornado destruction, and of Tabitha and family.
