Outbreak leads to changes at Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center

newspaperThrough Monday, Oct. 21, the Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center will not be accepting any cats, and adoptions will be limited during this time. The cat areas will be completely closed off to the public in order to allow for quarantining of the current cats and disinfecting the facility due to a recent Panleukopenia outbreak. Panleukopenia is a feline parvovirus. However, the facility will be accepting dogs and they have many available for adoption. The Animal Services Center will continue to remain open normal hours, Monday thru Saturday 11-4.

For the care of injured cats in Augusta County and the cities of Waynesboro and Staunton, residents of the three localities will need to call their local Animal Control Services to have these animals taken into care as needed.
