The Pitt County Animal Shelter has been shut down for dog adoptions because of a Parvo outbreak.
Cats are not affected and will still be up for adoption for the next seven to ten days.
The county says the shelter is working to combat the disease within its facility. It says Parvo, which is a potentially deadly disease for dogs, did not originate in the facility. Instead, it comes from animals that are brought into the shelter for adoption.
Parvo mostly commonly attacks the dog's intestinal tract and is shed in feces and vomit. It is not transmissible to humans.
