LAS VEGAS (KLAS)– The Animal Foundation announced Tuesday they will be resuming adoptions only for cats, small mammals, and exotic animals after pausing all adoptions, transfers, and fosters on Monday.
Dog adoptions are still paused, according to a spokesperson for the organization.
The foundation said in a social media post on Monday that the pause was based on advice from their veterinary team, claiming that dogs throughout the campus have been exposed to a respiratory illness.
Thus far, the foundation said 16 dogs are showing symptoms, and have been put on a series of antibiotics.
No animals have been euthanized as a result of this exposure.
The Animal Foundation recently experienced an overwhelming number of new animals, prompting the organization to seek the public’s help in managing the influx.
Animal shelters saw an increase in pet surrenders over the summer, with the Animal Foundation seeing a drastic increase in September.
No other details on animal adoptions were released Tuesday.
