Natural disasters are unkind. They tear people and pets apart. Moore
resident Brenda Beaty, who lived three blocks from Plaza Towers
Elementary School, was at work when the tornado hit on May 20.
Immediately, the search began for the family pets. Her daughter’s two
dogs were found, one still in the carrier. However, Beaty’s beloved dog,
Tinker, was missing.
Dogs may be man’s best friends, but a weekly reading program proves they love story time with kids just as much.
