Joplin Tornado Cats Fly to Pacific Northwest

July 15, 2011 |

Joplin tornado cats transported to Washington for fostering and adoption

Some tornado cats weren’t ready for adoption by the time the ASPCA/Joplin Humane adoption event took place last month. So on July 1, as part of the ASPCA’s new National Animal Relocation Initiative, the 57 remaining cats and kittens left Joplin on a plane to Washington state, where two groups — the Northwest Organization for Animal Help (N.O.A.H.) of Stanwood and the Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) of Lynnwood – were waiting to help them find furrever homes.

They flew in style on a Piper Navajo plane by Cloud Nine Rescue Flights, a volunteer-based aviation nonprofit that transports animals for shelter and rescue groups nationwide.

N.O.A.H. and PAWS will foster the cats until they’re ready for their new homes.
