(Lawrenceville, Ga., July 3, 2017) – The Gwinnett County Animal Shelter has issued a voluntary 14-day quarantine of cats due to illness.

No felines will be impounded or allowed to leave the building pending instruction from the Georgia Department of Agriculture.

While cleaning the shelter earlier today, an animal welfare and enforcement officer found an unresponsive kitten. Preliminary testing by a local veterinarian indicates feline panleukopenia; the University of Georgia will perform a necropsy to confirm.  

The shelter staff has contacted everyone who has a pending feline adoption. Dog intake, adoptions, and rescue will continue as usual.
