There’s now an official lost/found pets website for who are missing pets in the wake of the Oklahoma tornado. It’s at okclostpets.com.

Rather than trying to sort through tons of tweets and Facebook posts and pages, you can visit this site to browse by breeds, types of pets or rescue facilities. Those who are missing pets can post descriptions, etc., as well as those who have found pets.

Volunteers will also be sorting through the listings on that website to try to match up people with their lost pets.

From the website:

“If you’ve lost your pet, post a notice here. If you’ve found a pet, or you work for a veterinary hospital or shelter that has taken in a pet, please post it here. Feel free to look through both listings and try to find a match yourself–we will also have volunteers working on this page to try to connect people with their pets.

Obviously, if you are affected by these storms you may not be able to take your pet back right away. Don’t worry–foster homes are standing by to care for your pets until you’re back on your feet. Just establish contact so we are able to get in touch with you, and so you can be aware that your pet is OK while you are dealing with other matters.”
