Distemper Outbreak

The SPCA of Texas continues suspension of general intake and on-site adoptions at most locations due to the recent documentation of at least fifteen dogs infected with the canine distemper virus (CDV) in its care. The suspension is expected to continue for at least the next three weeks. Foster homes are also needed for distemper positive dogs. Recently, many shelters in north Texas have been facing similar outbreaks. Out of an abundance of caution, all dogs are being monitored and tested for infection.
