8-28-13 fdl animal shelter opens
The Fond du Lac Animal Shelter has reopened after a parvo virus swept through the shelter killing nine puppies and infecting a total of 19 dogs. Shelter manager Renee Webb says the surviving puppies are recovering and it appears the danger of the virus spreading to other dogs is now over. "It has been the most emotional week for the staff, I on't think that any of us have cried so many times as we have in the last 14 days," Webb told AM 1170 WFDL's Between the Lines program. Webb says at this point there is no way of knowing where the virus came from. She says it could have come from someone walking into the shelter with the virus on their shoe.
