After 3 intense days of cleaning more than 50 animals moved back to the Macon-Bibb County Animal Shelter.
Volunteers helped scrub the building with bleach to get rid of the Parvo and Giardia outbreaks. 18 Puppies had to be put down after being infected by the diseases.
Friday morning workers checked of lists to make sure each dog returned to the proper kennel at the shelter.
Interim Director Sgt. Robert Carr says, "We do want to thank all of the volunteers, the rescues groups, all the other different agencies, the city entities that have assisted us with this process."
Carr says after this scare animal control is looking into rewriting several procedures. He also says the shelter plans on doing more testing on the animals they receive.
"At least testing all the puppies. We don't know all the time what actually is coming in," says Carr.
Animal Control employees will continue to monitor the animals until operations go back to normal.
Animal Control Officer Van VanDeWalker says," Hopefully we'll be back to normal operations next week. We are all looking forward to that."
Once all the animals are back in the shelter they will be quarantined for another 14 days. Animal Control is expected to reopen at the beginning of September.
