Streptococcus Zooepidemicus

What we know about the bacteria that killed 2 dogs at SCRAPS

A bacteria called Streptococcus Zooepidemicus, or Strep Zoo, made its way into the SCRAPS shelter recently, killing two dogs in the last week and a half. Now, the shelter is closed for the next two weeks as it cleans and disinfects the shelter to keep the bacteria from spreading.
