Lots of flooding in the Caruthersville, Missouri area, even before they dynamited the levee upstream. Many people left and abandoned their animals. Last week the Humane Society of Missouri rescued a horse from a flooded area by putting a sling between two boats. The problem has gotten worse since then.
Today, the A.S.P.C.A. is here putting up temporary caging and corrals at Kennett's Delta Fair Grounds. They have brought a lot of people and resources. I went out at noon and looked at some horses and brought a dog back for treatment. His owner had tried to splint his leg before he left. It didn't work out well. The horse on my facebook page is not dead. This is the mare standing up and eating grass,
but she's got a leg that's not working.
I'm heading back out there now. More pictures later.
