RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - An animal shelter in Racine has temporarily halted the adoptions of cats.
That's after 4 animals at the Wisconsin Humane Society facility tested positive for Feline Panleukopenia Virus.
WISN-TV reports that an adult stray cat brought the potentially fatal disease to the Racine shelter two weeks ago, and infected other cats. All four of those infected either died naturally, or were euthanized.
Dogs and other animals at the Racine shelter can still be adopted, because the cat virus cannot be transferred to other pets.
Cat adoptions will resume September 2nd.
