— Kirstie Alley crawled into a cage at the makeshift animal shelter and cooed to a black calf.

"He's decided he's going to poo on me," she said, ducking out of the way.

"We've got lots of toys," she said of cat and dog toys.

The actress brought in supplies for people and pets Friday. She and a group of Scientology volunteers set up a tent to give out bottled water, candy, T-shirts, sun hats, socks and other supplies.

She also brought in food, bowls, cardboard carriers and other things that displaced animals need.

"I had some truckloads of things brought in," she said.

She paid for all of it.

Alley was in Los Angeles when she learned about the tornado that wiped out the town. She got in to Wichita on Thursday night. She would have come earlier, she said, but she was dealing with wildfires in Los Angeles.

"We got evacuated," she said wearing a yellow Scientology Volunteer Ministry T-shirt.

Alley is driving back and forth to Wichita and says she expects to be in Greensburg a while.
