CORBIN — By Carl Keith Greene / Staff Writer
When Friday’s tornado struck Laurel County, people weren’t the only ones displaced when their homes were destroyed.
Two representatives of Fur Ever Friends, Inc., a Corbin-based rescue group, went into the area of Laurel County where homes had been destroyed to find dogs and other animals that were lost.
“They are going in and bringing them back to us,” Fur Ever Friends, Inc. member Donna Slover said.
The animals were brought to the East Bernstadt Fire Department where their owners can pick them up, she said.
A man who had lost his mobile home had already come by and found his dogs, but because the man is now homeless, Fur Ever Friends, Inc. will care for the dogs until their owner has a new home, Slover said.
Eight of the dogs were at veterinarian offices to be cared for, she said, noting some suffered broken legs and were very injured.
“So our vets, House and Bowling here in London, took them in and they are working to take care of these animals,” Slover said.
About 10 more animals found were either at the fire department or were being transported there.
“Several haven’t been claimed yet,” Slover said
