Deadly virus causes Athens-Limestone Animal Shelter to euthanize dozens of dogs


Athens-Limestone Animal Shelter closed due to “highly contagious and deadly sickness” going around the shelter.

The shelter is closed for adoptions and unvaccinated owner turn ins.

Some animals have died due to sickness, so they are not taking in any dogs or cats until the shelter is clear of the illness.

The shelter is asking for fosters and adopters to come forward to help with the animals. Many of the dogs and puppies have not been exposed to the sickness.
