GREENVILLE, Pitt County - The Humane Society of East Carolina in Greenville reopened on Friday after being scrubbed clean following a parvo scare that closed the facility for several days.

The terrier-mix "Bear" was given a clean bill of health, having officially beat parvo.

Parvo is an extremely contagious and sometimes deadly canine virus. No other animals tested positive for the disease or have shown concerning symptoms.
