Families Reuniting With Their Pets

Sunday, March 24 was a great day for families, pets and Kansas State Animal Response Team volunteers at the emergency animal shelter in Troy, KS. The ultimate reward for a response volunteer is to witness the reunion of a family with their pets after a disaster and that is what Sunday was all about, watching pets and families enthusiastically reconnecting. Families were told they could could return to their homes at 9am and shortly after 8am families began arriving to pick up their four-legged family members. By 1pm the shelter was empty. By 4pm volunteers had completed clean up and demobilization. It was as time to reflects and bid fairwell to the communities of Troy, Elwood and Wathena fairwell. The Kansas State Animal Response Team was honored to serve!
