Humane Society forced to euthanize 8 more dogs

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The distemper outbreak at the Albany Humane Society has forced the shelter to euthanize 8 more dogs recently.

This comes after an initial dog that tested positive for the highly-contagious respiratory virus was put down.

21 other dogs tested positive but are responding well to treatment. Dogs that initially tested negative will be re-evaluated Thursday.

The intake office is open while the other dogs remain in quarantine.
