rescue underway in joplin

the tornado wiped out most of the city but it didn't take their resourcefulness.

as rescue workers search through rubble to find missing persons another rescue effort is on to reunite lost pets with their families.  a facebook page is now the quickest way to get a picture of your pet in front of 10,000 sets of eyes and the folks at the city's make-shift shelter facility.  meanwhile, shelter rescuers are updating constantly with pictures of new intakes and requests for donations, like blankets and towels. 

it's an amazing testament to the power of social media, and the people behind it. 

here's hoping this site, and the many others to follow, will give some joplin residents a happy ending...and a new beginning.
