FLINT — Genesee County Animal Control, 4351 Pasadena Ave., is closed due to canine parvovirus.
Officials said all animal adoptions and owner surrenders will be suspended until further notice for the protection of the animals currently residing inside the shelter, as well as animals in the community.
All animals currently held at the shelter will be monitored by shelter and veterinary staff for signs of the virus, and will continue to clean and sanitize the building, said animal control officials.
“We are diligently monitoring and taking proper precautions to avoid further spreading of this disease inside the shelter,” said Marie Clifford, Communications and Brand Coordinator for the Genesee County Board of Commissioners. “We apologize for any inconvenience, but this is an animal health issue.”
Genesee County Animal Control will still be open to public during business hours for purchasing dog licenses as well as identifying a lost pet.
If you have an Animal Control emergency, you are asked to call 810- 732-1660 and follow the prompts or call 911. — G.G.
