Many pets have ended up in shelters following Alabama's deadly tornado.

One shelter alone, has hundreds of lost animals.

Linda Workman, the shelter's assistant director, says many are either injured or emotionally scarred by fear. Workman says, "They're just as traumatized as the humans."

But Workman says she is encouraged by the mounds of supplies that have been donated and the volunteers who come to the shelter.

The Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter is where Reginald Jackson found his buddy. He says he was distressed when he walked up and down the shelter's cages, but couldn't find his pit bull Bolo. As he was about to leave, a veterinarian who had just examined Bolo, was walking him back to his cage.
