Bring Hanah Home

I read an article recently about a dog named Hanah who went missing in Joplin, MO.

She was lost during the tornado that killed more than 160 people and flattened everything in its path. I was saddened to hear that the last sighting of Hanah was when a black SUV with an official logo loaded her up, presumably to be taken to a shelter to await her family. To date, she has not been seen again.

It’s a mystery. What happened to Hanah?

Hanah’s Mom, Kari Wilkes, started “Bring Hanah Home”, BHH is a non-profit formed after the Joplin tornado. Hanah was torn from her family, photographed alive and believed to have been picked up. BHH seeks to increase disaster awareness and work towards standard emergency procedures for all pets.

Wilkes hands out business cards with her information and Hanah’s face. She’s hung hundreds of posters and fliers. She’s created a Facebook page, “Bring Hanah Home.” More than 10,900 have joined the fight to find Hanah. Wilkes hopes the network she’s built will bring her dog home. BHH has participated in disaster relief, most recently being involved in Oklahoma, gathering and delivering much needed supplies to families in need. (

My heart goes out to Kari, and the many others who have lost a member of their family or were in some way impacted by the recent tornadoes. I hope for Hanah and all the lost pets to be returned safely to their families who love and miss them.
