MOORE, Okla. (KTHV) - Following Monday's devastating and deadly tornadoes that touched down in Oklahoma, there are many pets that need attention and help. Agencies in Arkansas are teaming up to help our neighbors in Oklahoma.
Jenny Matthews, a Certified Veterinarian Technician for Doubletree Veterinarian Clinic in Ferndale and with Boulevard Vet Clinic in Maumelle, is going to Oklahoma to help animals in need. She is originally from Oklahoma and is leaving Thursday to assist friends at the Central Oklahoma Humane Society.
She will serve as Joey's special correspondent in the field and send updates while she is there.
All donations can be sent to the Central Oklahoma Humane Society - http://www.okhumane.org/ in care of Joey The Garden Cat.
