The Pitt County Animal Shelter reopened Friday after it was shut down after a Parvo outbreak.

10 days ago the shelter announced two dogs died and one was sickened from the Parvo virus.

Since then employees and volunteers have been busy bleaching everything and testing the dogs to make sure there were no other outbreaks.

Officials say since the original three dogs tested positive, no other dogs have been found with Parvo.

Dog adoptions are now back on, and it's good news since 25 dogs that were dropped off by their owners had to be euthanized in that 10 day period.
