Survivors of OK tornado

Some truly amazing miracle stories have been told with pet guardians and their dogs after the tornadoes in Oklahoma and Texas… here are a few:

Barbara Garcia, a resident of Moore, Oklahoma, who survived yesterday’s potentially historic tornado, was being interviewed by CBS News about riding out the storm in the bathroom of her former home.

Garcia was holding on to her dog when the winds came, but after the walls fell down the two separated, and she had been unable to locate him since.

Then, in the middle of the interview, little “Toto” suddenly emerged from the rubble, and the two were reunited in the most tearjerking of fashions.

“Well I got God to answer one prayer to let me be okay, but he answered both of them,” Garcia said.

The goal is to raise $50,000 to buy her a new home, and people have donated $30,000 in just four days!

This woman was going to work when sirens were going off about the tornado so she turned back and went home to her dog. The two of them spent their time in her bathtub with pillows as protection and they survived the storm.

In Texas, this man was inside his mobile home with his dog, an adorable pit bull, holding the dog in his arms when the tornado came and literally ripped the dog from his arms. Amazingly, the man and his dog were reunited when the dog was found in a nearby shelter after the storm.
