Included in this article is a free book giveaway.  No strings attached and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect with the recent Tornado Outbreaks in Illinois on November 17, 2013.  A minimum of 15 tornadoes either were seen or touched town in Illinois and several cities were affected.  On this day I was attending to clients pets securing them in their homes not knowing what actually was going to happen, especially after Emergency Management Agency text met to report to the EOC.  Before leaving to care for my clients pets, I secured my own in their crates in the basement.  The dogs seemed to know something was up and willingly went inside their crates.  While I was gone, my companion saw the rotating wall cloud that would hit Washington, IL with an EF4 tornado.

Brookport and Union City in Illinois were also hit with an EF3 Tornado and my friends in who work with various Animal Controls and rescues, have noted there are dead cats and dogs everywhere.  Many of the human and animal victims of these tornadoes are homeless right now.
