NEAHS allows dog adoptions following illness

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Operations at the Northeast Arkansas Humane Society came to halt after it was discovered several dogs had kennel cough in January.

Margaret Shepherd, director at the NEA Humane Society said they started noticing a few dogs had a small cough but it quickly spread to the other dogs. When the cough spread they couldn't take any animals in or have any adopted.

Wednesday, things turned around for the better.

"They're doing much better. Everybody is well and not coughing," said Shepherd. "As a matter of fact, we have about 7 dogs that are going to go to their new homes starting Saturday."

Shepherd said they are back to normal operations and they are still offering low cost spay and neuters. And right now, they're working on their trap, neuter and return program for cats.
