Lela the Pig helps pets from Joplin


The Dancing Chefs love to cook and dance, but what they love above all: …… their pets! Therefore it wasn’t a hard choice to support the animals that were victims of the tornado that struck Joplin Missouri in May. All the donations from the month of June will go to the Joplin Humane Society. We’re proud to announce that we collected a total of $457USD!

Natural disasters are unpredictable and usually very destructive. Humans have learned in some way or another to guard themselves from cyclones, tornados, and flooding and earth quakes. But our four-legged companions haven’t….  The tornado in Joplinwas a clear example of this. More than 900 animals found shelter in the Humane Society installations – three times its usual inventory. Many dogs and cats, some with cuts, infections and broken bones became separated from their owners in the chaotic aftermath of the May 22 twister.

The Joplin Humane Society is determined to find a home for every cat and dog that wasn’t claimed by their owner. To that end, an “Adopt-a-thon” was held during the weekend of June 25-26, where animals that hadn’t been claimed by their owners were given away free to good homes, after being spayed and neutered.  We were excited to find out that all tornado animals found a home: that means a total amount of 745 adoptions in 2 days!

We will continue to follow this wonderful organisation that has done so much for our most loyal companions…. Our pets!
