Pasco animal adoptions resume following parvovirus scare

Posted: Updated:
PASCO COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

Pasco County's Animal Services will reopen for adoptions on July 27.

The announcement comes one month after closing the adoption area after four dogs tested positive for Canine Parvovirus. Officials said four additional dogs also tested positive earlier this month.

Since early July there have been no additional Parvovirus cases observed by staff.

To celebrate the reopening of dog adoptions, dogs will be brought to the New Port Richey Government Center, 8731 Citizens Drive, on July 23rd, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The grand reopening of dog adoptions will take place on Saturday, July 27th, from noon to 5:00 p.m., at Pasco County Animal Services, 19640 Dogpatch Lane, in Land O'Lakes.

"We are excited about the reopening of our dog adoptions and are grateful to our dedicated staff and volunteers who have worked diligently during this challenging time. We have dozens of amazing dogs and cats that are ready to go to their forever homes," said Dr. Suzanne Salichs, Assistant County Administrator for Public Services. "Please join us on Saturday, July 27th, for our Dog Independence Day, from noon to 5:00 p.m. Free adoptions for dogs and cats are in effect and refreshments will be served."

If you have any questions, about Pasco County Animal Services, Canine Parvovirus, or pet adoptions, please call (813) 929-1212, (727) 834-3216.
