OHS dog adoptions resume after flu


Several dogs with the flu were treated and quarantined


PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Dogs are available for adoption again at the Oregon Humane Society after a bout of the flu required a quarantine last week.

A group of dogs that were transferred from another shelter had the dog flu. Those dogs were moved on site to prevent the virus from spreading.

They are being cared for by OHS staff at an off-site location and testing showed the virus hadn’t spread in the shelter.

“Our team mobilized quickly to contain the virus and protect the other dogs in our shelter,” Brian August, OHS Chief Operating Officer, said.

All the dogs at the humane society have been vaccinated as an extra precaution.

The OHS shelter on NE Columbia Blvd. is open from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Saturday.
