WEDNESDAY July 23 2014 | According to the Aurora, Colorado City Hall, it will be at least twenty days before any dogs can be taken in or adopted out at the Aurora Animal Shelter. There has been an unusually high rate of URI (Upper Respiratory Infection) and Pneumonia in some of the dogs housed at the shelter.
Due to five dogs with cases of URI or pneumonia being housed in the shelter, the public is being asked to visit another shelter for relinquishing and adopting dogs. These conditions are contagious.
Family pets can be surrendered at the Denver Dumb Friends League (2080 S. Quebec St. in Denver, 303-751-5772). Stray pets should be taken to the Adams County Animal Shelter, 10705 Fulton Street, Commerce City, 80022 (303-288-3294).
These recommendations apply only to dog adoption and intake. All other animals (such as cats and small animals) are still being adopted and taken in at the Aurora Animal Shelter. These animals are not currently affected by the Pneumonia and URI outbreak.
The Aurora Animal Shelter is working with members of the Metro Denver Shelter Alliance (MDSA) regarding those with adoption or intake needs for dogs. They're also working very closely with veterinarians regarding the cause of the outbreak, as well as a solution and protection for the dogs housed in the shelter.
If you recently adopted a dog at the Aurora Animal Shelter and believe your dog may be infected, please contact the Aurora Animal Shelter at 303-326-8282. Symptoms of an Upper Respiratory Infection include coughing, sneezing, and lethargy.
Again, all of the usual animals, besides dogs, can continue to be adopted out and taken in at the shelter.
