  • Strangles at HAHS
    Posted: 2/2/2018
    Strangles at HAHS (Equine Distemper) The Hooved Animal Humane Society (HAHS) has placed itself on a 30-day quarantine because one of our horses has tested positive for Strangles. We were surprised at the positive test result because we have not taken in any new horses in close to a year. We did, however, host an open house here on January 21, 2018, which may have exposed us to the infection. Our horse began to show signs of Strangles on Monday, January 29, 2018. If you were at the open house, or know anyone who was, please check your animals for any clinical signs of a Strangles infection and take appropriate medical action. We are working closely with our veterinarians to ensure that all of the proper contagion protocols are in place. Accordingly, we will be closed to visitors, including volunteers, for at least 30 days. Thank you.
