According to reports the Taney County Animal Shelter picked up a stray dog who had pups shortly after capture. Apparently the dogs and the pups had parvo. The animals were removed shortly thereafter.
Contrary to rumor the dogs were not taken nor had been in the vicinity of Pennel's Kennel.
The Shelter did have to eliminate a number of dogs after a number of dogs were found to have Parvo a couple months ago. No press releases was issued which arose suspicion with some.
It's unusual for a government body to avoid communication when there is a problem. By doing so the media has an understanding on how to address an issue instead of relying on rumors...which of course we follow up with as well.
A private entity in has expressed interest in setting up a shelter of their own.
