Iowa City Animal Shelter Cat Room Still Closed for Illness
IOWA CITY (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
The closure of the cat room at the Iowa City Animal Care and Adoption Center will last until at least Tuesday, Feb. 25.
The room was closed to the public late last week because of an illness. Some of the cats have been diagnosed with Panleukapenia, a virus similar to canine parvo virus, which requires quarantine. Center staff is taking every precaution to ensure the health and safety of the cat population during the quarantine period.
Until the room reopens, cats and kittens will not be available for viewing. Pet owners who want to relinquish their cats or kittens, or people who have found a lost or stray cat are asked to call the Animal Center at 319/356-5295 for instructions. Cats should not just be dropped off at the facility.
Those who would like to help support the Animal Center and its care of the animals during this outbreak are asked to donate towels of any size, bleach, antibacterial dish-washing soap, and paper towels. Financial contributions may be made to Friends of the Animal Center Foundation at http://facf.org or 319/541-6390.
All other pets that are available for adoption may be visited during regular shelter hours: Monday through Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The center will be closed next Monday, February 17, for Presidents' Day. The center is located at 4852 Sand Road SE, south of Iowa City.
