PSA: Animal Shelter Intake Temporarily Suspended

Due to a kitten within the facility testing positive for ringworm, the Glynn County Animal Shelter will temporarily suspend the intake of new animals beginning Tuesday, June 12, 2018. Ringworm is a parasite that is highly contagious.

As a precaution, eleven additional animals that were potentially exposed are being treated for ringworm per the protocol prescribed by the veterinarian providing services to the shelter. The area suspected of infection must be quarantined and disinfected to prevent the parasite from spreading before new animals can be taken in.

Animals that are currently available for adoption are housed in a separate location and thus not exposed to infection. All adoptable animals available at a reduced price of $25 through the end of June.

Sanitization of the intake area of the facility is currently underway. Staff and veterinarians will continue to seek solutions to reopen the shelter for animal intake as quickly as possible.
