Nashville Using Internet to Reunite Missing Pets With Their Families After Flood

Some 200 animals are being housed at the Davidson County Animal Shelter. Some were brought in by their families as they clean up from the flood, but many, like this little guy, were found and are looking for a home.

"All of these papers represent dogs that have been caught in the flood somehow."

Row after row of lonely faces, and a few wagging tails, each with their own story.

"The people that found this dog, brought it in with a teddy bear that it attached itself to."

"We have a little white poodle... had a puppy day of the flood and only one survived."

"She's trying to be a very good mama to that baby."

The shelter offered to house animals for flood victims for 10 days for free.

"With everything else that the families are dealing with, this is something we could do to give back to the community."

That deadline is Wednesday, but Judy Ladebauche is trying to extend it.
"Cause many people still don't have a place to go, so we are hoping to be able to work with them, depending on the circumstances.

More than 20 animals have returned home in the past two weeks. Danielle Burton is excited to bring her dog back home to the family. "The kids really miss her, right, you miss your dog?"

The directory is a joint effort between the Metro Animal Shelter and the Nashville Humane Association.
