MAS Manslick locations still closed

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Metro Animal Services' Manslick location remains closed following another outbreak of distemper and a series of upper respiratory diseases.

The facility closed on Friday, sending volunteers home as staff and medical crews worked to vaccinate and clean the facility.

Officials with the city's animal shelter plan to open a new animal intake facility by Tuesday. The facility will be in the old Public Works building next to Animal House on Newburg Road.

Metro Animal Services says it has seen 10 cases of distemper since June and more than 20 cases of upper respiratory infections.

The department is urging pet owners to have their pets vaccinated. It has also called on adopters and rescuers to come forward with information about any animals that might have had an illness in recent weeks.
