TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Missing woman Alice "Anita" Oswald was a main caretaker at the "Harmony Haven" animal shelter in West Terre Haute.

There are now "closed" signs at the shelter and animal rescue groups have taken animals at the facility.




The director of the Ouabache Valley Feline and Friends shelter picked up four cats Monday afternoon. She says more animals are being removed by Parke-Vermillion County Humane Society and Dog Diggity animal shelters.

The director stresses adoption is critical.

"Give them a forever home. That would help so much and that takes a load off the shelters. Most of the shelters and rescues we're pretty full but at a time of need we all need to step up and do our part" director Tammy Barnett says.

Barnett says there are five cats remaining at harmony haven and several dogs right now.

She plans to treat the four cats and get them ready for adoption. No word yet on the long term plans for the facility.
