I Rescued A Cocker!

I guess I did something stupid without really knowing. Someone gave me two petmate small plastic crates and I thought I can clean them up and donate to the local humane society. Then I discovered she used the crates for two kittens with distemper. I immediately completely submerged them on bleach water, washed my clothes and had a bath. The crates were in the back of my truck, never came inside the house or in contact with my dogs. Questions: Do I have to worry about my dogs getting infected? Is the bleach water enough to clean those crates that they are salvageable or should I just dump them? Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

No, Canine distemper is totally different from Feline distemper, two completely different virus's.

Also a link here for sanitizing, yes bleach inactivates the feline virus but I would make sure that I got every square inch before donating it,the virus can live a long time, wouldn't want to spread it to another cat.
