OSPCA Announces Plans to Transfer & Treat Afflicted Animals

OSPCA York Region Shelter Special Advisory
May 14, 2010

Licensed veterinarians are examining the animals on a case by case basis; based on their recommendations, we will be transferring animals to either be treated for the disease, or receive further testing if they are asymptomatic. We are working with accredited agencies, veterinarians, and shelters that have suitable facilities to house the animals while the testing, treatment and medical examinations continue. 91 cats and 23 dogs will be transferred to these facilities.
