Montgomery County Animal Shelters- New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Tennessee
There are some nasty rumors going around the internet that the above shelters in Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey are being shut down.
There is also a note attached that they are euthanizing dogs/cats today if they are not adopted by the end of the day.
This is in no way true!!!
Montgomery County Animal Shelter Texas is the ONLY shelter that was closed. All pets were adopted!
In all actuality the Montgomery County Animal Shelter in Conroe, Texas has shut down as of 09/21/09. They indicated that ALL animals had been adopted and they would continue the spay/neuter services. Please see the releases below and no you are not going to get a virus as I have checked these sites for myself.
