Albany Humane Society open for adoption

The Albany Humane Society is now allowing people to adopt dogs again.

Adoptions had been postponed since late April due to a distemper outbreak. More than 20 dogs tested positive for the highly-contagious respiratory disease.     

Only 6 six dogs remain that are positive. They are now quarantined and being treated for the illness. Officials hope to undergo more testing on them next week.

Adoptions resumed two weeks ago.
