All euthanizations on hold at Escambia County Animal Shelter

ESCAMBIA COUNTY    -  All euthanizations are on hold at the Escambia County Animal Shelter after a *third* dog was mistakenly killed.

The shelter accidentally euthanized a dog in late August and then two more last week.
Euthanizations will no longer be performed at the shelter without veterinary authorization, effective immediately. 
   
Additionally, Escambia County officials are working to amend policies and procedures, to ensure the welfare of animals and make the shelter more efficient.
   
One thing the shelter did say was for all pet owners out there to make sure they have updated information on their micro chips.
