The Hutchinson Animal Shelter has temporarily suspended all adoptions of cats.

Wednesday, the shelter released a  statement on social media saying cats and kittens cannot be adopted until June 15th due to a viral outbreak. 

"We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, we just have to ensure the health of our animals. We also want to prevent the public from taking home the virus to any of their animals as well." the shelter said.

Although cats cannot be adopted at the moment, applications for dogs are still being accepted.
