Adams County SPCA reports 3 more parvo cases

Posted: Updated:
GETTYSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Three more dogs at the Adams County SPCA have tested positive for parvo virus, bringing to four the number of dogs that have tested positive for the deadly disease since last week.

Shelter manager Abby Avery said two of the dogs tested positive for parvo on Tuesday and the third tested positive on Wednesday.

Daily tests at the shelter have indicated a fifth dog is at-risk, but it has not tested positive.

The shelter has been quarantined and closed for dog adoptions since April 17, when a stray dog named Sasha tested positive for the highly contagious disease that's spread only between dogs.

All four dogs have been euthanized.

The Antietam Humane Society in Waynesboro is currently accepting strays from Adams County.

Cat adoptions are by appointment only, and dogs that have been with foster families since the outbreak are still available for adoption.

The shelter is seeking donations to help pay for the costs of parvo testing and kennel cleaning supplies, and is also in need of bleach and bleach wipes.
