PAWS and More Animal Shelter in Washington has rid its feline population of panleukopenia. Executive Director of the shelter, Amber Talbot, explains that the virus is similar to canine parvo and has nearly a 100-percent mortality rate. She adds that this is something that pets are typically vaccinated for and that it is important to vaccinate pets.
The shelter went through a 6-week quarantine and is now clean and free of the virus. Due to the time with no adoptions, there is now an abundance of cats at the shelter and there are some discounted adoption fees at this time.
