TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Pima Animal Care Center is in need of fosters or adopters as Parvo season arrives.

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, Parvo is a highly contagious virus that affects dogs' gastrointestinal tracts and is spread by direct dog-to-dog contact and contact with contaminated feces, environments or people. Some of the signs of parvovirus include loss of appetite, abdominal pain and bloating, fever or low body temperature and vomiting.

Now that kittens and puppies are being born, the clinic is asking for the community's help.

The clinic has 5 confirmed cases and 2 possible cases, according to its Facebook page. The ones that are confirmed are on the back end of it.

PACC says the pups can go to homes where there are not any other dogs or homes where the animals have been fully vaccinated.
