Shelter Seeks To Get Spooked Pets Home

KSAL StaffApril 20, 2015

The Wichita Animal Shelter is seeking to reunite owners with their pets after recent thunderstorms scared the animals away from their homes.

Wichita police Lt. Steven Kenney says the animals, spooked by thunderclaps and loud rain, break through fences and lose their collars in the process. It makes it difficult for officials to find the pets’ owners without their identification tags.

Kenney recommends that those who find lost pets bring them to the shelter. He says they’ll have the best chance of being found by their owner at the facility.

The shelter has taken in more than 1,500 dogs, 970 cats and 65 other animals during the first three months of the year.
