If any dogs test positive for Canine Distemper Virus (CDV) at the shelter, we are immediately isolating them at our medical teams counsel and attempting to get them into a foster home. Since distemper positive dogs can shed the virus to other dogs for up to 3 months, they need to be isolated for that entire period or they pose a risk to other dogs at the shelter.
The Myron K. Martin Clinic is open for spay and neuter surgeries for dogs and cats. Make an appointment today.

This week we want to give you a closer look at Bosco, courtesy of our friends at ReadingGlasses.com! Clearly, this long-term resident hasn’t found their forever home yet because the right person just hasn’t laid eyes on them yet!
Bosco is a staff favorite, not just because he’s pretty to look at, but because he has such a big personality! This goofy pup can make some of the silliest facial expressions we’ve ever seen on a dog. He’s a huge fan of treats of all kinds, and is eager to perform a perfect “sit” in order to earn one! He doesn’t have much training, but Bosco is so smart and very treat-motivated, so we’re confident that some structure and practice will help him learn plenty of new skills in his forever home.
Unfortunately, Bosco didn’t have the best start to life, but he’s determined to make up for it with years of happiness with his future family. Bosco loves chasing after balls…though he hasn’t quite caught on to the concept of fetch yet! He’s been dreaming all this time of a big yard where he can run, bounce, and play to his heart’s delight. Bosco would love a family with teenagers and adults who can keep up with his energy and work on his training. He’s definitely a ladies’ man and takes a bit more time to warm up to males, so he’d like at least one female in his family who he can bond with right away while he learns to trust the fellas.
