Officials with the Sullivan County Animal Shelter say five dogs have now been put down due to an outbreak of parvovirus. 

On Monday, the shelter confirmed two dogs had tested positive for parvo and announced the shelter would remain closed through Monday, June 3. 

News Channel 11 first learned of the outbreak last week.

As long as there are no new cases over the weekend, the shelter will reopen on Monday according to shelter manager Peter Hanson.
