Quinte Humane Society
The Quinte Humane Society is pleased to announce that after three weeks with no new cases of Canine Parvovirus, they are re-opening the dog area to the public. Shelter Manager Marja Degerlund-Smith said “We are very excited to have our dog walking volunteers back in the shelter and the dogs are all eager to get out for some exercise”. During the quarantine dogs still had the use of the outdoor dog runs, but are looking forward to going for their daily walks.
The Society is urging the public to take advantage of the “First Set of Vaccine” clinics that are ongoing in the community by calling 613-968-4673 to book an appointment. “The best way to prevent another outbreak of Canine Parvovirus in the community is to have your dog regularly vaccinated and seen by a vet” reiterated Executive Director Frank Rockett.
