This 'n' That Thursday!

Happy This 'n' That Thursday everyone!
This is a blog hop hosted by:  2 Brown Dogs and Ruckus The Eskie

Hope you are all having a great Thursday!
So, for This 'n' That Thursday, I am going to do rescue stories or animal tragedies if I hear about any. If I don't then Ill post something else MOL!

Ouch..Some serious damage done here!
So for today's story, I have a story about a bus crashing into an Animal Shelter on Wednesday, October Second in Chicago area.

This bus was a school bus....It crashed into Niles Animal Shelter,  with 25 pets in it. 
Two women on the bus were not hurt, but now the shelter cant accept 75 rescue dogs that were due there soon. 
An update on 9 p.m Wednesday:
A missing cat has been found since the crash, and Touhy Avenue has been re-opened to the traffic caused by the crash. Write - Way has found some foster homes for all the animals for the night. It reported on their FB page and its board of directors had a meeting about deciding  to proceed in the immediate aftermath. Write - Way has primarily found homes for southern Illinois animals, which would have otherwise likely been euthanized. It had 75 animals due to arrive this weekend, but now it says that it cannot accept them because it has no place to put them. 
It also says that the bus has been pulled out of the building, and the antenna tower on top of the building had to be taken down, and the roof collapsed. 
Write - Way Animal Rescue is now looking for donations to help it re-build on its FB Page. (That's from the article). 
They said they do not own the building, but it has made thousands of dollars of work into it for the past few years, to accommodate the pets' needs. 

Thanks for reading, stay positive, and I will see you tomorrow in the Pet Parade!!

Happy This 'n' That Thursday everyone!!!
