I rec'd this bulletin tonight, can any of the rescues in the area help? I'm just heartbroken about this. Here's the bulletin...if anyone needs the contact info of the author just let me know as she noted she can help pull and transfer.
I would really like to get the Senior GSD out, he breaks my heart. :(
Irving Shelter had several adoption returns over the weekend who tested positive for parvo. There will be no adoptions to the public this week at Irving . Due to the need to thoroughly disinfect the shelter the population of dogs will be reduced to a manageable level. Rescues can pull any dogs that are at or past their adoption dates without charge. All dogs currently being treated for kennel cough in the vet area will be euthanized at close of business tomorrow (6/10). Any dog that is at or past it's adoption date is at risk of euthanasia after close of business tomorrow. If you intend to rescue any of these dogs please advise the shelter staff as soon as possible. If I can help with pull or transfer of any of these dogs please call me also.
This is from the Shelter Management:
Irving Animal Services is willing to transport animals if needed.
We do not think everything has been exposed but are implementing procedures to safeguard our adoption partners and any potential adopters
This is a link to the URGENT dogs.
They are the dogs most likely to
be next in line for euthanasia
