     "It was awful, pure and simple and it makes you realize how thankful you should be for what you have," says Dr. Alice Mills, owner of Lexington Hospital for Cats.

     These heartbreaking images don't begin to show the devastation caused by the recent tornadoes across the United States.  Dozens of people killed, thousands of others homeless and unable to care for themselves, let alone their pets.

     "Their pets are starving.  They lost everything and their pets depend on them to survive.  To lose a pet because you just can't get it food, would just be almost more than anyone could bear," explains Dr. Mills.

     But, it's not only starving pets that need help.

     "Injured animals, animals with broken limbs, animals that just are lost, they're totally displaced from their families and from their owners," comments Dr. Mills.

     That's why the Lexington Hospital for Cats on Southland Drive is trying to help.  It's partnering with the Eagles Landing Pet Hospital in Morehead.

     "We need basic supplies; bedding, litter, food, cleaning supplies," says Dr. Mills.

     Not only is the cat hospital collecting basic necessities but also things you may not think of>

     "The other thing that they are looking for is flea control, flea control products.  We've also heard they need flashlights," explains Dr. Mills.

     The donations will be taken to the pet hospital on Wednesday night but you can still help.

     "We'll continue to take loads out until we've delivered everything that we collect," comments Dr. Mills.

     Those donations will be collected during business hours, for more information go to www.lexingtonhospitalforcats.com or call (859) 275-2089.
