Disasters

Among the lost and displaced in Washington's massive mudslide: Beloved pets

Pets and livestock also perished in the huge landslide that destroyed a mountainside community in Washington state.

The full number of pets and livestock killed may never be known. Authorities also don't have a clear number of how many pets are missing or displaced by the March 22 slide. There are at least 37 horses displaced, and at least 10 dogs missing, according to different animal services helping the recovery efforts.

For those animals that survived, the community and outsiders have rallied to support them with donations. Bag after bag of food for dogs, cats and chickens have filled up the rodeo grounds outside Darrington, which is serving as a makeshift shelter. At last count, it totaled nearly 45,000 pounds.
