Volunteers from PAWS CHICAGO, the city's largest no-kill animal shelter, will travel Friday to rescue approximately 75 pets from the Oklahoma City-area, site of Monday's deadly tornado.

Oklahoma City Animal Care & Control is out of space after taking in more than 150 animals left homeless by the tornado. PAWS is taking animals, some which have significant medical problems, and transporting them back to Chicago. Some of the animals should be ready to adopt at 11 a.m. Monday, May 27. Others will be in a foster home and receiving medical care until they are ready to be adopted.
