Veterinarians with the University of Georgia, Cornell University, the University of Florida, and Merck Animal Sciences have all consulted with Dr. Solveig Evans, the shelter’s medical director, throughout the process, Pihera said.
Once the voluntary quarantine has ended, every dog at the shelter will be sent to a rescue group. After that takes place, Pihera said, shelter staff will clean and sterilize the facility before it is reopened on an heretofore undetermined date.
In the meantime, the animal shelter will move daily operations to its former home on Lawrenceville’s Hi Hope Road. Stray animals will be accepted starting Saturday, and animal adoptions will be available during normal hours.
There are currently 10 dogs at the temporary location, Pihera said.
