Overnight on December 10 and 11, 2021, at least 30 tornadoes struck 6 states: Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi, and Tennessee. Kentucky was especially hard hit in what the governor is calling "one of the darkest days in the state's history." A state of emergency has been declared, and first responders are assessing damage and trying to locate survivors in the rubble.At least 88 people have died, and over 100 remain unaccounted for. Many other people lost their homes, pets are displaced, and animal and human services shelters are working to take in as many as possible. People and pets urgently need our help now.
Greater Good Charities is already responding, fielding requests from partners on the ground. We are planning emergency transports to move pets in shelters prior to the tornadoes out to make room for incoming displaced pets. We are in communication with animal and human services partners about sending in shipments of needed supplies including food, pharmaceutical products, and bedding. We stand ready to issue emergency cash grants to affected partners and first responders. But we can’t do it without your support.
Your donation will fund these desperately needed emergency relief efforts, providing cash grants, medication, food, and more to vulnerable people and pets who need it most. Rush your donation now to help victims of this unprecedented winter disaster.
