CRISIS! KY Tornado-Impacted Shelters Need Help! CROSSPOST!
Please cross-post widely & network on Facebook!! NO CraigsList please.
Please read the entire post. 3 counties are included in here.
Best things to do right now: Send donations, and pull dogs from all 3 counties into your rescue. Communication may be sporadic. Cell phones may die and not be able to be recharged due to power outages. Please be patient if this happens. They will likely be inundated with emails once this gets spread around. Roads may be blocked. If you plan to go there to pull dogs, try to speak to someone in the county by phone to check on road conditions before you go.
