The Stevens Swan Humane Society in North Utica is currently closed due to an outbreak of a virus that affects dogs.
One confirmed case of canine parvovirus at the Stevens-Swan Humane Society has prompted officials at the shelter to close for 10 days to allow for proper cleaning and decontamination.
Public relations director Jerry Kraus says the shelter is closed to the public and they will not be accepting animals from residents. However, he says, strays brought in by Animal Control will be accepted.
The virus does not affect humans or cats, he said.
