An Armstrong County animal shelter is shutting down for several days after one dog died and two puppies became sick on Monday.
The owners of several dogs in Scott Township were in court Wednesday because one of the animals attacked a little boy last month.
A 5-year-old Scott Township boy was injured Friday while he and his mother were visiting a friend’s home.
The Animal Rescue League in East Liberty has quarantined the dogs at its shelter after an increase in cases of a virus that can be deadly. Officials say the canine parvovirus is highly contagious and is “spread from dog to dog by direct or indirect contact with their feces.”
