    The Humane Society of North Texas and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals are lending a hand to help those impacted by Wednesday night's devastating twisters.

    Working in partnership with Hood County Animal Control, the HSNT has a team on the ground going door-to-door to rescue trapped animals and return them to their families.

    The HSNT said Thursday afternoon they have already rescued about 50 dogs and cats, though more are feared missing.

    Volunteers are accepting donations for dog food, cat food and cat litter at their location in Fort Worth at 1840 E. Lancaster Avenue.  Cash donations are being accepted as well.

    Animals that were up for adoption in Hood County are being moved to Fort Worth to clear space at shelters in the county.

    In Ellis County, the SPCA of Texas has transferred 12 dogs from the Ellis County SPCA to their McKinney facility to make room for animals affected by the storm.  The facility has plenty of room for cats, but was near capacity for dogs before the storm hit.
