Placeholder Image
Due to a recent influx of suspicious cases of the canine distemper virus, the Kershaw County Humane Society (KCHS) has temporarily suspended the intake and adoption of dogs at the Thiel-Meyer Pet Adoption Center on Black River Road in Camden. The suspension will be in place until every dog at the center has been tested and cleared of the virus, according to a Kershaw County government press release. Since April, the KCHS reports it has seen seven highly suspicious cases of the canine distemper virus with one case positively confirmed.
