Campbell County Animal Center recovering from parvo outbreak
News


(WBIR) The Campbell County Animal Center is working to recover after suffering a parvo outbreak last week. The disease in dogs is highly contagious and can become life-threatening.

The center had to euthanize twelve dogs because of the outbreak, according to Campbell County Mayor E.L. Morton. He said the center is now also working to improve the floor so that it's easier to clean.

Donations in the form of cleaning supplies and floor sealant solution are being accepted.

Morton said the center is still taking in animals and handling adoptions. He said they've also recently hired a full-time vet tech to help run the shelter more effectively.

Back in November, the center temporarily suspended animal adoptions and owner surrenders due to confusion over its adoption process and reimbursement of veterinarians for spaying and neutering services.
