Molino Park Elementary Serves As Pet Friendly Shelter During Michael

October 11, 2018

Molino Park Elementary School served as a pet friendly shelter during Hurricane Michael.

The shelter housed about 30 people and just over a dozen pets, according to information provided by Escambia County.

In the pet friendly shelter, owners provide their pet’s food, water, bedding, medications, collar with ID tag, familiar items like toys, crate, leash and proof of vaccinations. They are required to stay in an adjacent building.
For the protection of people and other pets at the shelter, animals brought in without proof of current vaccinations are vaccinated by Escambia County Shelter staff.

The animals were kept in kennels on heavy duty plastic with plastic on the walls. The entire area was cleaned and disinfected after the shelter closed at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
