Lewiston animal shelter halts adoptions
LEWISTON (WGME) -- A Lewiston animal shelter is halting dog adoptions...
The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society is stopping adoptions for the next two weeks after a dog at the shelter was diagnosed with parvo-virus.
Parvo-virus is a highly contagious viral infection that attacks white blood cells in a dog's intestinal tract.
If the virus is not treated, it can be life threatening.
The shelter is treating the diagnosed dog and is monitoring the other dogs for symptoms.
