STRATFORD - After being closed to the public for two weeks, the Stratford Animal Shelter re-opened to the public Thursday and is ready for adoptions.

The shelter was closed due to three cases of the Parvo virus found in dogs in late January. The virus can be deadly for dogs, however, is harmless to cats and humans.

Animal control officer Sterrett Pixley warns that since the virus may have been picked up by a dog out in the community, the incident should serve as a reminder for pet owners to make sure their pets are up to date with their vaccinations.
