PORTLAND, Ore. — The Oregon Humane Society says it will resume dog adoptions on Saturday.
The shelter had paused dog adoptions for nine days after a group of them was exposed to the dog flu. Those dogs were moved to an off-site facility and continue to receive care from OHS staff.
During the past week, dogs at the shelter were quarantined and tested for dog flu. Based on the results, OHS veterinarians, in consultation with a national expert, determined the virus did not spread, OHS said.
All dogs available for adoption have received a canine influenza vaccine as well, according to OHS.
You can check out pets at the humane society from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Sunday. The shelter is located at 1067 NE Columbia Blvd. in Portland.
