Tuesday storms cause pets to lose homes, wander among rubble

ALICEVILLE, Ala. (WIAT) — Anytime a storm causes major damage to homes, pet owners run the risk of losing their furry friends.

While in Aliceville on Wednesday morning, WIAT 42 News reporter Lillian Lalo encountered a dog walking among the rubble, scared and hungry. Although the dog had a collar, it had no tags, and no one was out looking for it.
