After nearly a month, dog adoptions at the Plano Animal Shelter have begun again.

The shelter shut down adoptions Jan. 27 due to an outbreak of canine influenza. Dogs that have recovered from the illness and tested negative twice are no longer considered contagious and are now up for adoption, according to a Feb. 21 news release from the city.

As of Feb. 16, 10 dogs still showed symptoms, according to the release. Those dogs will remain unavailable for adoption until receiving two negative tests for canine influenza after symptoms have stopped.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine provided free testing to the city, according to the release.

The shelter is located at 4028 W. Plano Parkway. More information on adoption-ready dogs at the Plano Animal Shelter can be found here.
