A Parvo outbreak at the Adams County Animal Shelter has shut down dog adoptions until further notice. In a statement on the shelter’s website, it explains that a stray dog brought into the shelter tested positive for Parvo.

The employees are taking the necessary precautions to protect the shelter’s other animals, as well as the public’s animals. Parvo is a serious disease found in dogs that can kill within a few days but a simple vaccination can prevent the disease.

All stray animals brought into the Adams County Animal Shelter are vaccinated upon their arrival to prevent the spread of the disease. The shelter will still be open for cat adoptions.
