An Oklahoma animal rescue worker is one of the many heroes to have emerged after a slate of tornadoes devastated the state.
Yesterday, the Associated Press photographed Maeghan Hadley, owner of 1 Day Ranch animal rescue, tending to a kitten that was pulled from the rubble left by one of the initial tornadoes that touched down near Shawnee, Okla. on Sunday.

"Her home was almost hit by the tornado that ripped through another town the day before yesterday," Reddit user katality, who claims to be a friend of Hadley's, commented in a post yesterday. "She's helping all sorts of people and their pets after the devastating day we had in Oklahoma."
According to AP, a Chickasaw Nation rescue group helped rescue the kitten from the rubble of a destroyed mobile home. The rescue workers are among many who continue to comb the debris for survivors.
