Providence Police Officer Fran Gass holds an injured beagle which she found in the rubble out on Westerfield Road in Providence on Monday morning. Veterinarian nurse Shanna Schneider takes a look at the dog’s bloody eye before Dr. George Steedly examines her. According tot he Doctor’s initial examination, the dog sustained serious head injuries. The beagle was one of several injured animals Gass and another officer pulled from the wreckage of three homes. A nearby litter of puppies which had been in their doghouse which was picked up and thrown by the tornado, was not as lucky.
