A flood of volunteers poured into Joplin after a tornado ripped through the city on May 22, including many who came to help the displaced animals.
Dr. Roy Davis, of Fulton, returned from Joplin late Tuesday after spending three days caring for homeless dogs and cats. Davis calls himself a “semi-retired” veterinarian, because he doesn’t have his practice in Edina anymore but still works a couple days a week at Centralia Veterinary Clinic. The vet also teaches animal cruelty and neglect classes all over the country through the University of Missouri Extension’s Law Enforcement Training Institute.
