Humboldt SPCA has been dealing with several deaths their animal population over the last couple of weeks.
With the cost of euthanization and other vet bills, the Humboldt SPCA is now financially struggling and turning away stray pets to save money.
Wanda Price is the manager and animal care director of Humboldt SPCA. She says it all started with one sick kitten.
“I put her in isolation,” Price said. “At first she was starving, but then she started not wanting to eat. The vet diagnosed her with car parvo, or feline distemper.”
Cat parvo, or feline distemper, is a highly contagious and lethal disease which is treatable if caught in time.
Price also says a dog had to be put down due to severe cancer.
A go-fund-me page has also been set up for the SPCA in order to raise some funds.
