This has been a bad month for Dog's Den, the doggie daycare center on Fifth Avenue between 12th and 13th. After an outbreak of kennel cough, a highly contagious viral infection, the center shut down on December 3rd to "decontaminate." Less than a week later a notice went up on the door saying that the premises had been shut down and possessed by the NYC Marshal. Now there's a sign up saying the storefront is for rent.
Not positive if there's a connection between the outbreak and the eviction, but as it's the marshal's job to enforce orders from Civil Court, my guess is that they're being sued by the infected dogs' owners. An email has been sent to the owners; I'll update if I hear anything.
