Dogs Trust Evesham partially reopens following distemper scare

The Dogs Trust centre in Evesham has been partially reopened to the public after a suspected case of distemper in one of its dogs led to its temporary closure.

The centre was closed to the public while the case was investigated. Today (19 April) it was been partially reopened from 12pm to 7pm.

No other dogs are thought to be infected.

A spokesman said: “Dogs Trust Evesham will be partially open from 12-7pm tomorrow (19 April), though some areas will be temporarily closed to the public.

“Visitors are welcome to come and chat to our staff about adopting a dog and they will be able to advise on potential canine companions, however they won’t be able to meet any of our dogs for the time being.

“We also request visitors not to bring their own dogs to the centre. These temporary measures are in place as a precaution while we investigate a suspected case of infection in a single dog.

“The dogs on site are being closely monitored by our experienced team; at present there are no other suspected cases of infection and the dogs are generally well.

“Thank you to everyone for their patience. If anyone has any queries please call Dogs Trust Evesham on 0300 303 0292.”
