Start Over Rover shut its doors to the public this week while a few of its dogs recover from the flu.
Volunteer coordinator Amy Michalek expected the no-kill shelter to open its doors again Saturday if all the dogs were well.
"With the human epidemic going around the way it is, we really just want to keep our babies healthy," she said.
Five dogs that came down with a cough were treated with an antibiotic and cough tablets for kennel cough. But soon they became lethargic and had diarrhea.
"After about 10 days of treatment, it wasn't going away," Michalek said.
