     "It's remarkable," says Dr. Alice Mills.

     The Lexington Hospital for Cats put out a call Tuesday for donations to help pets hit by the recent tornadoes.  And, in less than 24 hours, the community answered.

     "Our lobby was completely filled with products, food, litter, beds," explains Dr. Mills.

     Dr. Mills and her staff dropped off a truck load of those donations Wednesday night to Dr. Connie Spencer at the Eagles Landing Pet Hospital in Morehead.

     "It's awesome," comments Dr. Spencer

     Dr. Spencer and her staff have been instrumental in helping find animals affected by the storms.

     "Saturday morning Menifee County dispatch contacted us and started bringing us in and taking us to actual locations where the storm had hit, so we were doing search and rescue and on site emergency care," says Dr. Spencer.

     She says they've treated all sorts of animals.

     "We saw dozens of cattle, injured horses, dogs, pot belly pigs, cats.  Most of these families, the houses were completely destroyed and, in most cases, the owners were gone, in the hospital, or a couple of them deceased," explains Dr. Spencer.

     And Dr. Spencer says they still need help, "we saw entire communities just completely wiped out.  They still need dog food, cat food, bedding, litter, things like that."

     If you want to adopt any of these animals or if your own pets need help, call the Eagles Landing Pet Hospital at (606) 780-0208.  You can also still drop-off donations at Lexington Hospital for Cats, just call (859) 277-8048 for more information.
