Nine dogs were tested for distemper Thursday morning by Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center staff, who are still attempting to stop the spread of the disease. In the first two weeks of the quarantine, 10 dogs have been euthanized. Pictured is facility director Kim Pettrey, left, with Brandi Bouldin.
Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center is two weeks into what is projected to be a month-long closure due to distemper.“We’ve had to euthanize 10 dogs so far,” said facility director Kim Pettrey. “This has been a very trying time for us. While some facilities just euthanize them all and start over, we’re attempting to save as many as we can.
