The City’s Animal Services division is alerting dog owners of a local outbreak of the disease canine mycoplasma. Citizens should ensure their dogs are secure, avoid strays, and contact their veterinarian if they suspect an issue with their dog. The Animal Shelter has halted the intake of dogs. The move was made today after shelter officials noted dogs with the disease in the facility and spoke with several veterinarians. Dogs will not be accepted until at least August 29th when the health of dogs in the community and in the shelter will be reassessed. This weekend's annual Clear the Shelter event has been postponed to Saturday, September 7th.
