East Texans Offer Help After Discovery Of Distemper Among Shelter Dogs

Some help on the way for some of the dogs infected with Distemper at the Humane Society of Gregg county.

Last night we told you, several dogs at the shelter have been diagnosed with the highly contagious, usually fatal disease. To prevent a further outbreak, those that remain in the shelter at the end of the week will have to be euthanized.

Today the shelter tells us they have been flooded with calls from East Texans who want to either adopt or foster the dogs until the threat is gone.
