Veterinary clinics and shelters are banding together to help the animal victims of Saturday's tragic landslide in Oso.
The team from Chuckanut Valley Veterinary Clinic is caring for Bonnie, an Australian Shepherd who was found trapped on her owner's lap in one of the destroyed homes. She lost one of her owners and the other was hospitalized in critical condition.
Bonnie suffered a fractured front leg and needs a surgical plate to repair the damage.
A German Shorthaired Pointer named Blue also found with wounds and fractures. Blue's owner, Oso Fire Commissioner Tim Ward, is recovering from injuries. His wife Brandy is still missing.

The Everett Animal Shelter has taken the lead on caring for found pets. They will care for the animals as long as needed. They have also established a lost and found book where they will be tracking the animals. The Shelter says on their Facebook page that the information compiled in the book will be taken from animal owners who are looking for their pets and Good Samaritans who have found a lost or abandoned dog or cat in the area of the slide.

The Lost Pets of Snohomish Mudslide Facebook page was set up to help families find their lost pets and livestock and to be a place for people to share information.
Northwest Equine Stewardship Center and Cedarbrook Veterinary Care have joined forces to care for horses who have lost their owners in the landslide.
