Parvo at the Jefferson County Humane Society

Humane Society officials say four dogs were diagnosed with the disease and had to be euthanized.

The infected animals were isolated from other dogs and did not transmit the disease to the ones in these pens.

The three week quarantine has now been lifted. Now these lovable dogs are looking for new owners.

Cheryl Bautista, the caretaker at the Humane Society, says, "The reason why we quarantine is mainly a safety precaution. It can stay in their system for three weeks before they show any symptoms so it was more safety than anything."

Some 25 dogs are now ready for adoption and can be a great addition to your family.

If you would like to adopt a dog or a cat please call the Jefferson County Humane Society at 850-342-0244.
