The Anderson County Animal Shelter P.A.W.S have reopened their doors after a parvovirus outbreak.

All drops offs and adoptions, were restricted since last week, after a puppy arrived and tested positive for the parvorvirus.

Monday afternoon, P.A.W.S officials said all the infected animals were isolated and under quarantine. The Standard Operating Procedures for Anderson County P.A.W.S call for either the euthanasia or quarantine of all animals that may have been exposed to parvovirus.

However. limited public access is being allowed on adoptions for the animals that were not infected. You can find that list of animals on the P.A.W.S website, but you’ll have to call (864) 260-4151 to setup an appointment.

If you recently adopted an animal and have questions, you’re urged to call P.A.W.S.

Staff will be on hand to answer calls from 12:00 noon until 6:00 PM weekdays and from 12:00 noon until 4:00 PM on Saturdays. Those calling outside of those hours are asked to leave a message—P.A.W.S staff will be returning all calls.
