LMAS Closes Temporary Shelter

Louisville Metro Animal Services has closed a temporary shelter that was set up last month to help stop the spread of distemper and other diseases at the Manslick Road operation.Officials opened the shelter September 20 in an old public works garage next to the MAS adoption center off Newburg Road to separate new intake animals from the Manslick population.As a precaution, all new animals arriving at Manslick will be cared for in a separate building on the property by staff that has not had contact with the main shelter. No new cases of distemper have been diagnosed at the shelter, but two possible cases were identified by officers in animals picked up over the weekend.Pet owners are being encouraged to have their animals vaccinated to prevent the spread of deadly diseases.
