Parvo Virus Shuts Down Pound, Again

10-10-06 - A deadly virus has shut down a Murray County animal shelter for the second time in two weeks.

Last week, the Sulphur Animal Control Officer picked up a stray dog and a few days later it started showing signs of the Parvo virus. In order to decontaminate the shelter, they had to shut it down and put down the nine dogs living there.

Two weeks ago, 12 dogs were put to sleep because of the deadly virus. Veterinarians are hoping the first freeze will wipe the virus from the environment. The Davis animal shelter opened back up Monday after the Parvo virus struck there.
