TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) – The West Alabama Humane Society and Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter workers know too well how a devastating tornado can make cause a huge need for additional help. Now with hundreds of displaced and injured pets in Moore, Oklahoma they need help. Alabama shelter leaders say they need to all work together and have one central location for the tornado pets. In the days after the April 27, 2011 tornado, the Tuscaloosa area animal shelters cleared their shelters by sending the animals that were already there to Birmingham and Shelby county. That made it easier for families to reunited with their furry friends.
