So far there are no other cases of the disease, but Anderson County P.A.W.S. wants to be sure the animals are in good condition before being offered for adoption.
Two animal crisis organizations are assisting the shelter as they care for the dogs. RedRover Responders and the Humane Society are working with the dogs, alongside Anderson County P.A.W.S. and many volunteers from the Anderson community who have stepped up to help.
Anderson County Interim Administrator Rusty Burns gave a statement to WSPA7 saying
“I want to personally thank these two organizations for their assistance. Representatives from these two nationally-recognized organizations will arrive in Anderson tonight and immediately get to work on Tuesday morning. This past weekend has been an amazing demonstration of the generous spirit of our residents. Their kind response towards these animals has turned a terrible situation into a true testament to the kind of County we are.”
