The Humane Society of Sullivan County continues its fight against a deadly virus affecting cats and kittens.
A recent outbreak of panleukopenia has caused the shelter to be under quarantine for 14 days..
The shelter is safe and open to the public, but they are not taking or adopting out cats at this time.
The virus causes nausea and vomiting with cats, and the dehydration is what ultimately kills them and only affects cats.
Due to the quarantine the shelter had to destroy many of the cats and kittens materials. They are in need of towels, blankets, kitty litter, and cat food.
If you would like to help you can contact the shelter at (812) 268- 4201. Dogs can still be adopted or dropped off at the shelter, and if there is no sign of the virus after fourteen days they will lift the quarantine.
