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.

Today’s Foster Friday feature is Buck! This 1 1/2-year-old mixed breed dog is a cuddle bug if there ever was one! Buck came from a case of neglect, where he was allowed to starve and sustained damage to the tip of his tail. But you’d never know Buck had been mistreated from his personality – even on the first day we met him, Buck was sweet and affectionate. He was so eager to be loved and we knew he had a bright future ahead.
Buck has been healing in a foster home, and we’re thrilled to report he’s put on weight and his tail is looking so much better. He’s been having a wonderful time in his foster home, always exploring the world around him and finding new things to get excited about.
This playful, fun pup would love any type of home – as long as he gets plenty of exercise he’ll be happy as a clam. He truly enjoys the company of humans and trying new things. Buck would love to meet any kids under 10 in the household before he goes home with you. Buck is eligible for a trial adoption, so you can take him for a “test drive” to see if he fits into your household!
