Adoption Center Update / Closed Until July 31

Adoption Center Update / Closed Until July 31
We wanted to take a moment to give you all an update on where we are at with the center. We had closed the center to the public, halting intake and adoptions while we worked through the concerns that Canine Influenza H3N2 had made its way into our center.
During this period of closure Mark Neff, Adoption Center Manager, partnered with Sandra Newbury, DVM who is the Director of Shelter Medicine Program for the University of Wisconsin-School of Veterinary Medicine and a leading expert on Canine Influenza H3N2. We were able to secure funding through a research grant with her to test our dogs on site. Currently, we do not have any Canine Influenza H3N2 present with any of our dogs! We are doing another round of testing today. We feel very confident that we are clear, this is a final safeguard.
We are also in the final round of testing for our cats and believe most of them will be cleared of ringworm and be available for adoption soon.
Thank you for all your support.
