Kennel cough forces restrictions at the Humane Society

The Thunder Bay Humane Society has suspended all dog adoptions, and implimented other strict controls. It follows the discovery of the kennel cough virus among some of the dogs. Director Deb Cooper says it may take some time to get it under control as they treat the affected animals. She predicts anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks. Cooper says that local vets are even asking dog owners to keep their pets out of the dog parks under the virus goes away.
