For Immediate Release:
October 8, 2014
We’re not aware of any evidence that dogs can transmit Ebola, but even if they can, it seems contrary, unfair and upsetting that while all efforts are being made to save the afflicted woman, none will be made to save Excalibur, a dog who has not contracted the disease and may indeed be unable to do so. If the woman survives, her heart will be broken to find that authorities have killed a beloved member of her family. We appeal for common sense and mercy to prevail and for this dog’s life to be spared.
