Oklahoma City vet looking after dogs strayed by storm damage

From staff reports Published: February 10, 2009
Dr. Gary McNeill and his staff at the Rockwell Pet Clinic are looking after dogs gone astray because of storm damage. Three dogs had been brought to the clinic by 6 p.m. Two had collars but none had identifying microchips or tags.

"We hope we get the owners," McNeill said. "That's our goal - to get the dogs back to their owners."

The storm didn't damage the clinic, though it is about 300 yards from the worst damage along Northwest Expressway and Rockwell Avenue, he said.

McNeill said his clinic has been opened to lost dogs several other times.

"We do it every storm," McNeill said. "Any time fences go down, we'll take dogs, and owners come looking for them."
