Total Eclipse of the Cat

August 21st, 2017 will be a unique day. There will be a total eclipse of the cat at the New Albany Floyd County Animal Shelter. Walk into the shelter, no glasses required, and watch as your heart aligns with those of the cats seeking a home.

This is a once in a lifetime event for people and it can be for black cats, too. It can be the day they find their forever home with no adoption fee! Across the country, black cats stay in shelters much longer than any other color. Help us shine some light on these precious faces and adopt today.

All cats and kittens are spayed/neutered, microchipped, Felv/FIV tested negative, and current on vaccinations. Adoption hours are from noon to 4PM. Limit one per household.

Pet of the Week : Pheobe

Please help this big ol’ ray of sunshine find a home! Pheobe is a very sweet and loving girl that is about 10 1/2 years old.

She doesn’t let these things get her down! She is already spayed, microchipped, current on vaccinations and heartworm tested negative! Her adoption fee has been sponsored so that she may find her forever home a little easier! Please visit her at the at the New Albany Floyd County Animal Shelter today!

Canine Influenza

Canine Influenza
Due to the recent outbreak of Canine Influenza, usage of the dog park will be at all members’ own risk. If your dog has boarded anywhere, or been in close contact with other dogs, please refrain from using the park for at least two weeks. This should help to protect the other dogs in the park. Vaccinations are strongly recommended if your dog is at high risk. High risk dogs include dogs that participate in dog sports, visit dog parks, or are groomed or boarded. Vaccination may prevent the illness or at least minimize the severity of symptoms.

Dogs infected with the Canine Influenza virus may show varying symptoms from none at all to severe. The most infectious stage of the virus is during the first two to four days of infection before they begin to show signs of illness. All dogs exposed to the virus will contract the disease with varying severity.

Please make an informed decision before you attend the dog park or dog related events. For more information contact your veterinarian or follow this link to read more information provided by the American Veterinary Medical Association,
